This Environmental Justice Strategy is intended to promote a comprehensive, consistent, and adaptive method for identifying and addressing environmental justice through the activities, policies, and programs of DHS Operational and Support Components. The Office of the Chief Readiness Support Officer and the Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) began updating the DHS Environmental Justice Strategy in the fall of 2019, with the assistance of the DHS Environmental Justice Working Group. Through this process, DHS Components provided input on strategic goals and objectives to ensure alignment and consistency with Department priorities. From September 24, 2020 to November 5, 2020, DHS made the draft Environmental Justice Strategy available to the public in five languages by posting on a public website19 and distributed it among the CRCL stakeholder email list. One anonymous comment was received via email, and all comments have been taken into consideration.
