This handbook is a companion to a more extensive report, entitled, Opportunities for Advancing Environmental Justice: An Analysis of U.S. EPA Statutory Authorities (ELI Statutory Analysis), which highlights the provisions in the environmental laws that could be used by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to promote environmental justice. This handbook is written to be a practical guide for community residents who want to know how the environmental laws can be used to promote environment justice in their communities. It focuses on opportunities, legal rules, and tools that community residents have under environmental laws to protect their health, the health of their families and neighbors, and their environment.
