Do you think that a lot of the issues with Title IV claims comes from the fact that primary enforcement lies with the federal organization giving funding, with the Justice Dept serving a coordinating function, and if so is there a way to push for the Justice Dept to take a more active role?
Jillian Morrison (she/her)
01:07:13
sorry title vi!

For Dr. Spears: With this summer's revival of widespread protests and activism for racial equality, do you expect, or have you seen evidence of, a linked revival in environmental justice protests and activism?

Also, do you think the bill proposed by Sen. Ruiz and Booker creating a separate cause of action will expand the availability and opportunity for disparate impact claims?

Dr. Fields: What role, if any, do you think that the Green New Deal could have in increasing continuity between states' responses to regulation and issues of environmental justice?

I would offer the grinding work of reviewing routine state air and water permits, enforcement orders, and other places where no one is really watching

Some folks here might be familiar with RISE St. James and other groups' successful effort to beat back the latest iteration of these anti-protest laws in Louisiana. But awful earlier law remains on the books. https://www.desmogblog.com/2020/06/11/mandatory-minimum-hb197-louisiana-formosa-plastics
