“Just” pollution? 

Air pollution and environmental justice in the United States


Decades of research provide substantial evidence that in the United States, low-income households and people of color often experience higher-than-average levels of pollution. These disparities are not accidental; they reflect systemic racism and other historical factors extending far into the past. Societal goals for air pollution include not only reducing population-average exposures, but also addressing exposure inequities. This talk will summarize evidence of existing disparities, highlight scientific approaches for addressing those disparities, and discuss implications for future air pollution research.
