Environmental Justice and NYS Climate Law
New York State has passed an ambitious law to address climate change, called the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. It also includes specific goals related to vulnerable populations, commonly called Environmental Justice.

Environmental Justice refers to the government's obligation to ensure that people of color or low-income sectors of the population are not disproportionately affected by adverse environmental impacts or hazards. Join this presentation and discussion about environmental justice, how it relates specifically to the new climate law, and how our community can participate to ensure Rochester benefits.
