Biden creates new Environmental Justice office

Biden signs executive order on environmental justice to combat 'legacy of racism'


Environmental justice for all—it’s what President Biden said was the goal of the executive order he signed on Friday creating a new office of Environmental Justice within the White House.

The order requires federal agencies to notify communities of toxic substances are released from a federal facility.

“This is about people’s health. It’s about the health of our communities. It’s only about the future of our planet,” Biden told activists, lawmakers and others before signing the order in the Rose Garden at the White House reported Reuters.
