The Urban & Environmental Policy Institute (UEPI) based at Occidental College is a community-oriented academic research and advocacy organization that conducts community-based research on environmental and social justice issues.  UEPI serves as the umbrella for a variety of affiliated programs addressing work and industry, transportation, regional and community development, land use, and urban environmental issues, among others.

UEPI also works to engage city and county General Plan processes in Los Angeles, Long Beach, Commerce and Carson with regard to goods movement activities to ensure that community-specific plans will include health-based elements that specifically address public health impacts and mitigate air pollution, noise, light glare, and blight from ports and goods movement activities.
