"I am pleased to announce that we are launching the Justice Department's first-ever Office of Environmental Justice to oversee and help guide the Justice Department's wide-ranging environmental justice efforts. Like all parts of government, it will get its own acronym: OEJ. … In partnership with EPA, our new OEJ will serve as the central hub for our efforts to advance our comprehensive environmental justice enforcement strategy."—Attorney General Merrick B. Garland
