Environmentalism is a term that has commonly been associated with the preservation and conservation of the earth (Elliot). Its main focus is on protecting animals and plants, along with using more sustainable practices with renewable, or finite, resources such as oil, wood, and water (Elliot). Although the environmental movement’s sole concern is protecting the earth, the movement does not protect its people. Environmentalism does not accommodate the health and safety of all human communities when advocating for environmental health policies. Environmental racism is a pressing issue that must be addressed alongside environmentalism, as all communities and people, regardless of race and socioeconomic status, are entitled to equal protection from
