Original Message (CNSNews.com) - "Victims of environmental crimes...have received insufficient support for too long," Acting Associate Attorney General Matthew Colangelo said this week, as the Biden Justice Department and Environmental Protection Agency announced a new program to "seek justice for all of these victims."

"The Department of Justice and EPA are pleased to formally announce the creation of the nation’s first-of-its-kind Environmental Crime Victim Assistance Program," Colangelo said in a speech in Washington.
He gave a few examples of who the program will help:

Some are casualties of large-scale, high-profile incidents like the Deepwater Horizon disaster or the Volkswagen emissions scandal. But the majority are victims of crimes that receive much less public attention:

-- The low-wage worker given no or inadequate protective gear and exposed to asbestos fibers from a renovation or demolition project;

-- The farmworker exposed to an illegal application of a pesticide;

-- The family whose exterminator illegally applies pesticides and causes permanent brain injury to children in their home; and

-- The community located near a cluster of industrial facilities, where one polluter knowingly violates the law by exposing that community to carcinogens while the other facilities follow the law.

We serve and seek justice for all of these victims.
