Exploring support for climate justice policies in the United States

This analysis is based on existing survey data and is not a comprehensive study of public attitudes towards climate justice. Environmental and climate justice are broad concepts that incorporate many more national, state, and local-level policies and practices than are examined here. Most public opinion research on public support for environmental policies has not focused on justice dimensions, but a few other organizations have also conducted research on support for some climate justice policies and concepts, and our own past work has explored climate change beliefs, attitudes and actions among communities of color in the United States. The current study contributes an overview of Americans’ support for several federal policies that are aligned with climate justice goals.
