Part of the R4 Connections Webinar Series.
People who live, work, and play in the most polluted environments are commonly people of color, indigenous, and low-income. EPA's environmental justice (EJ) goal is to provide an environment where all people enjoy the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards and equal access to the decision-making process to maintain a healthy environment.
In the first 30 minutes, we will hear from Corbin Darling, the Environmental Justice Coordinator at the US EPA's Region 8 Office in Denver, where he will provide an overview of key EJ concepts and definitions, a discussion of the EJ priority within EPA and the Federal government, and an introduction to EPA's EJ screening and mapping tool; EJScreen.
