Environmental Justice

NYLPI’s Environmental Justice and Community Development Program provides legal and organizing assistance to low-income communities and communities of color in New York City on environmental and land use issues. These communities are disproportionately burdened by noxious and undesirable land uses and deprived of beneficial land uses. We work to strengthen communities’ ability to assert their right to a healthy environment, while at the same time promoting community-driven economic development, affordable housing, open space, and community services.
