Why do government agencies allow environmental inequalities to persist? – Jill Lindsey Harrison
In this presentation, Jill Lindsey Harrison will present key findings from her book, "From the Inside Out: The Fight for Environmental Justice within Government Agencies," which lifts the veil on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other environmental regulatory agencies to offer new insights into why they fail to reduce harmful toxics and other hazards in our nation’s most environmentally overburdened and vulnerable communities. Harrison’s research examines the disappointing pace of environmental regulatory agencies’ environmental justice (EJ) programs and policies as a case through which to understand why, despite reducing air and water pollution for the nation overall, government has not protected the communities who suffer the most.

Jill Lindsey Harrison is an Associate Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder. Her research focuses on environmental justice, environmental politics, and immigration politics, with a regional emphasis on the United States.
