A new analysis shows better air quality improvements for communities historically overburdened with pollution under policies supported by environmental justice groups compared to ones aligned with the state’s likely policy plan.

The analysis released Wednesday was done by Resources for the Future, a nonprofit research group, and the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance. NYC-EJA has been advocating for climate action that centers on communities of color and low-income neighborhoods.
