Environmental Justice in Maryland

In late September, the Environmental Law Clinic released a report on Environmental Justice in Maryland. Communities of color and low-income communities in the United States often bear a disproportionate burden from environmental and public health hazards. Clinic students identified many examples of environmental justice issues and concerns in Maryland by reviewing published studies and reports, conducting interviews, and attending community meetings.

The Clinic’s research also revealed that the state has done little to address environmental disparities over the past 30 years. The report and its recommendations build on the Clinic’s work providing direct representation to communities impacted by environmental injustice by calling for action to address the systemic problems that allow those injustices to persist.
