Climate change affects all of us, but it does not affect all of us equally. Low-income communities and communities of color are frequently the hardest hit by fossil fuel pollution and the negative impacts of the climate crisis - 68% of African Americans live within thirty miles of a coal plant, 80% of Latinos live in areas that do not meet U.S. EPA air quality standards, and both groups suffer disproportionately from extreme weather events.
The Clean Power Plan is an important opportunity for states to design plans that reduce carbon pollution to tackle climate change and address past environmental wrongs committed on historically neglected communities.
The Clean Power For All Policy Innovation Center offers effective starting points for developing state plans that take on issues of fairness and inclusion for low-income communities and communities of color.
