The dumping of toxic wastes and hazardous chemicals in areas with large populations of people of color is known as environmental racism. The Church strenuously opposes this and directs its Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility to screen its portfolio so that investments are made in companies that exercise responsible corporate behavior. We also oppose the use of other countries as dumping grounds for waste. Part of respecting the dignity of other people means not exposing them to health risks.
Working together for justice.
