The EJ IWG is launching the Access & Awareness Series, a monthly event, to provide public access to the working group and to increase community awareness of federal agency environmental justice strategies and holistic community-based solutions to address environmental justice issues. This series will help the public gain a deeper understanding of how federal agencies are collaborating and what resources are available to anyone interested in improving the health, quality-of-life, and economic opportunities in overburdened communities.
The first webinar of the series, “Federal Agencies Convening for Environmental Justice: Connecting Communities to Green Space, Healthcare and Jobs” will provide an introduction to the Environmental Justice Interagency Working Group established in 1994 under Executive Order 12898 and chaired by the Environmental Protection Agency. It will highlight three innovative federal projects with presentations from the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Labor and the Department of the Interior, National Parks Service. These presentations will highlight agency programs and how they integrate important EJ principles to target underserved and overburdened communities.
