Comments for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the Strategy to Reduce Lead Exposure

The NYCLU submitted this comment to the Environmental Protection Agency regarding its Strategy to Reduce Lead Exposure and Disparities in U.S. Communities. The EPA strategy correctly prioritizes the advancement of equity in environmental justice communities, particularly communities of color that are overburdened by lead, and the NYCLU recommends ways to increase the effectiveness of this strategy. Not only ending but remedying these generational harms will take sustained intergovernmental collaboration and a singular focus on achieving racial justice.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
