Booker's environmental justice plan
We’re glad to see that Senator Cory Booker’s campaign has pledged to focus on environmental justice and help support those communities that have borne a disproportionate burden of polluters’ unchecked actions. For too long, people in those areas have been disregarded or disenfranchised from the decisions that affect them.
Booker’s plans to increase enforcement of environmental laws and work with communities to hold polluters accountable and reverse Trump’s assaults on the environment are laudable. Any candidate who is serious about becoming our next president must put forward a comprehensive plan for climate action that is commensurate with the scale of the challenge that we face.
