EPA to Hold Second National Environmental Justice Community Engagement Call
May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
EPA invites Environmental Justice (EJ) advocates to participate in the second National Environmental Justice Community Engagement Call taking place on May 19, 2021 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time). These calls are free and open to the public.
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. The calls first began in 2010 and were a valuable tool for EPA to learn about EJ needs in communities around the country. The first re-launched call was held on February 17, 2021 and had nearly 700 participants.
As environmental justice continues to be integrated into EPA programs, policies, and activities, the Agency hopes that relaunching 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.
