This program promotes environmental justice to prevent harm and protect California’s most vulnerable and environmentally burdened communities. We work to broaden the transparency of DTSC’s programs, support precautionary approaches, and challenge existing inequities. We strive to support community-led solutions and develop justice-informed approaches to collaboration, research, policy, and resource decisions. Environmental Justice is one of five primary goals in DTSC’s 2020-2024 Strategic Plan.

DTSC’s Environmental Justice program is part of the Office of Environmental Equity, which includes its Public Participation and Tribal Affairs programs. By integrating all three programs throughout DTSC, we strive to be part of achieving a healthy California for all. Learn more by going to our Office of Environmental Equity web page.
