Sustainability and Justice in the Next American Metropolis
Edited by M. Paloma Pavel

The emerging metropolitan regional-equity movement promotes innovative policies to ensure that all communities in a metropolitan region share resources and opportunities equally. Too often, low-income communities and communities of color bear a disproportionate burden of pollution and lack access to basic infrastructure and job opportunities. The metropolitan regional-equity movement--sometimes referred to as a new civil rights movement--works for solutions to these problems that take into account entire metropolitan regions: the inner-city core, the suburbs, and exurban areas.
