What is the Best Way to Address Environmental Justice Issues?
The information received from a survey of state departments of transportation (DOTs) included a variety of responses regarding the level of implementation of environmental justice (EJ) policies, procedures and programs. Even though the level of implementation varies among the DOTs, the basic principles of EJ evaluation and response are consistent. A synopsis is provided of what can be called "best practices" for implementing an effective EJ program.
