Join us on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 at 12:00 PM for Designing Equitable Policy: How to Advance Environmental Justice and Community Leadership in Your Work.
Our webinar features grassroots leaders and environmental justice advocates who will be highlighting best practices and lessons learned for integrating community-led decision-making in local and state policy. Panelists will share their community stories and reflections on how they’ve engaged with decision-makers to push for the kinds of healthy and toxic-free living environments that frontline community members deserve.

As the COVID-19 crisis further transforms our social, economic, and political realities, we hope that this webinar and our most recent report, “Rethinking Local Control: Placing Environmental Justice and Civil Rights at the Heart of Land Use Decision-Making,” can provide some helpful perspective as we collectively respond to the ongoing public health crisis.
As we work to adapt to these uncertain times, we must be mindful of the needs of the most impacted community residents who continue to bear the brunt of inequitable and unjust policies
