RIDEM Environmental Justice Policy

DEM has developed a policy to guide all programs within the Department. It is intended to be a dynamic document evolving based on feedback from local community groups, businesses, elected officials, faith communities, and Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities of Rhode Island. This policy represents DEM’s ongoing commitment and dedication to the State of Rhode Island and the people who live within its communities who are often disproportionately impacted by environmental issues and lack of access to natural resource opportunities. View the draft policy and provide feedback.
