Environmental Justice

Energy, transportation, and other key infrastructure systems in the United States are often designed in ways that disproportionately impact vulnerable and voiceless communities. Moving forward, we must work across boundaries to remedy injustices and ensure that all perspectives are incorporated into decision-making processes that affect planning and resource allocation. UC Davis is a leader in building diverse engagement on big challenges, including those facing energy, transportation, and the environmental. The Policy Institute works to better connect between historically disadvantaged groups with the policy process, and supports emerging leaders in developing strong voices in energy and environmental topics.
