There is a post going the rounds that links to a 2012 government document but I still think it's a spoof designed to embarrass skeptics.  It's headed:  "Here Come the Green Police! DHS Launches ‘Environmental Justice’ Units"  An excerpt:

Not a minute too soon, the Department of Homeland Security has announced that it is creating “environmental justice” units that will be empowered to oversee regulations in conjunction with local governments throughout the country. The framework for the Environmental Justice Working Group includes eleven federal government agencies, including the TSA, the Secret Service and FEMA. Go big or go home, right?

In its just-released Environmental Justice Strategy document, the DHS says the idea is to “include environmental justice practices in our larger mission efforts involving federal law enforcement and emergency response activities” and to incorporate environmental justice in “securing the homeland.” Roll that around in your head for awhile:

But Google "Environmental Justice Working Group" and the most recent reference is to 2010
