Environmental Justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.

Improving Kids’ Environment works on environmental justice issues and has worked with the Martindale-Brightwood Environmental Justice Collaborative (MBEJC) in Martindale-Brightwood and the Hawthorne Center in NearWest. IKE is committed to working on environmental justice issues and has made it a key strategic directive for future programs.
