Abstract
Environmental justice is one of several priorities for EPA’s Pacific Southwest Region and supports the
Administrator’s theme of making a visible difference in communities. In 2014, the Region transitioned from a
core EJ team to a model where each Division is responsible for integrating EJ into its work through
participation in a regional EJ Network. The network develops and follows through on shared commitments in
places and projects. The plan is informed by opportunities to implement tools and approaches resulting from
EPA’s Plan EJ 2014, such as our permitting and enforcement initiatives and the use of EPA’s nationally
consistent screening tool for EJ, EJSCREEN.
