EPA Environmental Justice Conference Call

Administrator Lisa P. Jackson has made Expanding the Conversation on Environmentalism and Working for Environmental Justice one of her top priorities. In support of this priority, we invite environmental justice advocates to participate on our Quarterly Environmental Justice Community Outreach Calls.

The purpose of these 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 these calls will better inform the public about EPA’s EJ work and enhance opportunities to take advantage of federal activities.
