EPA adds new program to advance environmental justice that will ‘distribute billions’

Published in Blog on September 26, 2022 by Brianna Kraemer

The executive branch launched a new office under the EPA over the weekend called the Office of Environmental Justice and External Civil Rights, just weeks after progressives won billions in funding through the so-called Inflation Reduction Act.

The office is intended to address disproportionate harms inflicted on low-income areas and communities of color by pollution and climate change, according to reports.

Environmental initiatives received a whopping $60 billion in the Inflation Reduction Act, of which $3 billion will be allotted to the new environmental justice program. The funds will be distributed in grants to underserved communities affected by pollution, something the government is hoping Americans see as a benefit.

But really, the Biden administration’s equity, inclusion and social justice power play is evident. At the end of the day, this is the kind of “initiative” that leads to our ever-expanding federal government growing even more powerful.

The EPA announced that the new office “will position the agency to better advance environmental justice, enforce civil rights laws in overburdened communities, and deliver new grants and technical assistance.”

Biden will nominate an assistant administrator to lead the new office, who will then report to EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan.

Regan told AP News that the new office “will distribute billions.” He explained that the agency’s “pot of money” was extremely small before, making it difficult to distribute grants to communities. Now the agency will be capable of distributing powerful amounts of taxpayer dollars all while ensuring “underserved and overburdened communities are at the forefront of our work.”

The political establishment uses federal agencies as tools to further their agenda in a manner that can be perceived as virtuous. Really, these programs are after control and cannot be trusted.

Neither can politicians be trusted with huge amounts of power over regular Americans trying to earn a living and live a moral life. That’s not the lifestyle in the Swamp, which is why they need to be pushed back.

A Convention of States will force Washington to realize We the People don’t care what the politicians have to say. In the end, we care about our freedom and independence to live the way we choose. So let’s enact term limits, put budgets on the government and take away the excessive power and size accumulated by federal agencies.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention for proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington, DC.

I support the Convention of States Project; a national effort to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of Article V Convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support the Convention of States Project and consider becoming a co-sponsor of the resolution. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.

Respectfully, [Your Name]
