Environmental Justice Advisory Board

The Environmental Justice Advisory Board (EJAB) is charged with making written recommendations to the Secretary concerning policies, practices, and actions that DEP may implement to advance the goals of Environmental Justice. EJAB will also advise the Secretary and the staff of the Office of Environmental Justice on the implementation of DEP's Enhanced Public Participation Policy.
