Administrator Lisa P. Jackson has made Expanding the Conversation on Environmentalism and Working for Environmental Justice one of EPA’s top priorities. The purpose of the Quarterly Environmental Justice Community Outreach Calls is to provide information to participants about the Agency’s EJ activities and maintain an open dialogue with EJ advocates. As EPA continues to advance Plan EJ 2014, the Agency hopes that these calls will better inform the public about EPA’s EJ work and enhance opportunities to take advantage of federal activities.
EPA is taking suggestions on agenda topics for the upcoming call. After receiving your suggestions, they will select the topic(s) that are of general concern to communities. The call will last for an hour, so the number of topics discussed will be limited. Submit a topic.
On November 4, 2010, EPA held the last call where they discussed a variety of topics. For example, EPA provided EJ advocates with an update on Plan EJ 2014 and our Gulf Coast Outreach. EPA also provided information on topics that were raised, such as the Agency’s youth activities, air monitoring network and the White House Forum. Listen to the recordings. (EPA)
