Since the 1980s, significant research evidence has shown that racial and ethnic minorities in the US suffer disproportionately from environmental pollutants and environmentally undesirable facilities. Yet, the history of the US and the world shows that racial and ethnic minorities are not the only minority groups who are discriminated against.
Dr. Heather Campbell presents a study that examines the effect of religious minority status (which is not measured in the US Census), and finds that at least two religious minority groups, Jews and Muslims, also suffer from environmental injustice. Dr. Campbell is professor in the Department of Politics & Government, Field Chair of Public Policy, and Director of the Division of Politics & Economics at Claremont Graduate University. She is also a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management.
