One origin of the Campaign was the environmental justice movement. The following notice for a new quarterly peer-reviewed journal, just came across my desk.

Deadline: May 1, 2008

Environmental Justice, a new quarterly peer-reviewed journal, will be the central forum for the research, debate, and discussion of the equitable treatment and involvement of all people, especially minority and low-income populations, with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. The Journal will explore the adverse and disparate environmental burden impacting marginalized populations and communities all over the world. The Journal will draw upon the expertise and perspectives of all parties involved in environmental justice struggles: communities, industry, academia, government, and nonprofit organizations. The Journal is seeking papers on: human health and the environment, occupational health, science and technology, land use, public policy, urban planning, legal history as it pertains to environmental justice, sociology and anthropology of environmental health disparities. Instructions for authors are at and manuscripts should be submitted at:
