EJSCREEN Webinar – Register

Take a look at this announcement from the EPA about the EJSCREEN Webinar-

After a year of public engagement and collecting feedback from stakeholders, EPA is announcing the release of the latest version of EJSCREEN, the agency’s environmental justice screening and mapping tool. The new EJSCREEN has an abundance of new features – all of which were requested by the public – including (to list a few):

  • The inclusion of the National Air Toxic Assessment environmental indicators for cancer risk, respiratory, and diesel PM
  • Scalable maps, that summarize data at the Census block group, tract, or county-level
  • The ability to save sessions and print maps from the home screen
  • A feature that allows you to look at two maps, side-by-side
  • The addition of Puerto Rico

The EPA will be hosting three webinars to engage with EJ stakeholders on questions about the new data and design of EJSCREEN as well as a discussion of how EJSCREEN is being used. These webinars will include a basic overview of the tool, and will not be technical in nature. Please register for the event via the EventBrite page.

EJSCREEN webinar dates:

  • June 28(2 pm EST)
  • June 30(4 pm EST)
  • July 11(3 pm EST)
