What are the fundamental concepts of Environmental Justice (EJ)?
A. The three fundamental EJ concepts are to: • avoid, minimize, or mitigate disproportionately high and adverse human health or environmental effects, including social and economic effects, on minority and low-income populations. • ensure the full and fair participation by all potentially affected communities in the transportation decision-making process. • prevent a denial, reduction, or significant delay in the receipt of benefits by minority and low-income populations.
