EPA Environmental Justice Community Outreach Call - May 19, 2011 at 4 p.m. ET

Administrator Lisa P. Jackson has made Expanding the Conversation on Environmentalism and Working for Environmental Justice one of EPA’s top priorities. In support of this priority, we invite environmental justice advocates to participate on our next Quarterly Environmental Justice Community Outreach Call, which will take place on May 19, 2011 at 4 p.m. ET.

The purpose of these calls is to provide information to participants about the Agency’s EJ activities and maintain an open dialogue with EJ advocates.  As EPA continues to advance Plan EJ 2014, the Agency hopes that these calls will better inform the public about EPA’s EJ work and enhance opportunities to take advantage of federal activities. Listen to, or read about, previous calls at http://www.epa.gov/environmentaljustice/events/ej-outreach-calls.html.

We are taking suggestions on agenda topics for the upcoming call.  After receiving your suggestions, we will select the topic(s) that are of general concern to communities. Please keep in mind that the call will only last one hour, so the number of topics discussed will be limited. Submit a topic at http://www.epa.gov/environmentaljustice/events/ej-outreach-calls.html.
