The Environmental Justice Advisory Council (EJAC) to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) is appointed by and shall serve as an advisory body to the Commissioner of the NJDEP. EJAC is committed to the basic tenet set forth by the Environmental Justice Movement that all communities, regardless of their racial, ethnic, or economic composition, are entitled to equal protection from the consequences of environmental hazards. EJAC will make strategic recommendations to the NJDEP Commissioner to ensure that the Department develops effective communication programs, implements and enforces environmental laws, regulations, and policies so that such actions do not unfairly burden any New Jersey population of people with a disproportionate share of environmental pollution. Further, EJAC will strongly encourage the Department to provide a mechanism for outreach to direct community participation in environmental decision making.

2010 EJAC Meetings

Meetings are scheduled for the first Wednesday of each month, except during July and August. Meetings will be held from 10:00am to noon at the DEP building, 401 East State Street in Trenton, NJ.
