Environmental Equity

Environmental issues often disproportionately affect racial minority and low-income communities, putting those populations in greater danger of health risks. Angelo Logan, cofounder of Eastside Yard Communities for Environmental Justice and the campaign director of the Moving Forward Network; Gladys Limón, executive director of the California Environmental Justice Alliance; and Paul Ong, director of the UCLA Center for Neighborhood Knowledge, discuss the multitude of factors at play in making environmental justice in Los Angeles more equitable across diverse communities. Moderated by Joe Lyou, president and CEO of the Coalition for Clean Air.
