Fundamentals of Environmental Justice (WBT) explains how environmental justice, or EJ, applies to each stage of transportation decision making. The US Department of Transportation, or US DOT, and its partners are committed to integrating the principles of EJ and nondiscrimination into all Federal programs and activities. In this course, participants are presented with a variety of strategies and resources for considering EJ throughout the transportation decision-making process.
The target audience consists of transportation practitioners (entry-level to senior-level) employed at a range of organizations, including State Departments of Transportation, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, local transportation agencies, and consulting firms. The typical learner may hold the following professional roles: data analyst, planner, project-development specialist, environmental specialist, civil rights specialist, consultant, or any other job function that may require knowledge of environmental justice and transportation. Also, those who interact with minority and/or low-income communities; provide community services; and elected officials and their representatives may benefit from this course.
