Abstract

The outcome of efforts to educate federal land-use managers about their roles in implementing the Executive Order 12898 `Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations' is examined. The managers participated in a 6-h Nominal Group Technique (NGT) workshop where they were instructed to weight environmental justice issues versus others associated with hazardous waste problems in their districts. Participant responses were quantified and analyzed through a series of rounds. After each round, participants received increasing amounts of information on environmental justice issues.
