While early environmental justice (EJ) activism seemed often associated with fights against the disproportionate impacts of toxic contamination on minority or low-income residents, the more recent EJ agenda combines environmental sustainability and equitable community development. It includes demands for: well-connected, affordable, and clean transit systems (Lucas 2004); healthy, fresh, local, and affordable food; community food security (Alkon and Agyeman 2011; Gottlieb 2009; Gottlieb and Joshi 2010; Hess 2009); as well as jobs, training, and other opportunities in the green economy (Fitzgerald 2010). In their struggles, urban activists pay much attention to comprehensive community reconstruction and neighborhood livability initiatives, since much environmental degradation, long-term abandonment, and trauma takes place at the local scale (Anguelovski 2014).
