Matthew Tejada, Director, EPA Office of Environmental Justice

Matthew Tejada
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is turning to Matthew Tejada, a Houston activist, to lead the EPA's Office of Environmental Justice. As executive director of the Air Alliance Houston for almost six years (2007-2013), Tejada fought against pollution in poor neighborhoods surrounding Gulf Coast ports. Tejada is expected to begin his new role in early March.

I recently started a blog named environmental Justice junky, and had no idea this existed. So glad to know there's another blog devoted to environmental justice policy in the US.
Many thanks to whomever does the work to put this information up!
