A Environmental Justice & Public Health Committee Announcements

  EPA to Hold National Environmental Justice Community Engagement Call – August 31, 2021 at 2-4pm EST

EPA invites Environmental Justice (EJ) advocates to participate in a National Environmental Justice Community Engagement Call taking place on August 31, 2021 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time). These calls are free and open to the public.

Register Here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/epa-national-environmental-justice-community-engagement-call-registration-166849710977

The purpose of these calls is to inform the community and other stakeholders about EPA's EJ work and enhance opportunities to maintain an open dialogue with EJ advocates.

As environmental justice continues to be integrated into EPA programs, policies, and activities, the Agency hopes these calls will help reaffirm EPA’s continued commitment to work with community groups and other stakeholders to strengthen local environmental and human health outcomes.

The Agency will also increase the frequency of these calls to learn more from stakeholders and communities and also to provide updates about ongoing initiatives such as Justice40.

Please email [email protected] to request reasonable accommodation for a disability or interpreter services in a language other than English, so that you can participate in the call and/or to request a translation of any of the event documents into a language other than English.
