Free Webinar: Application of Environmental Justice to State Environmental Impact Assessment

Want to learn about how to apply environmental justice practices to State environmental impact assessments? Well - you're in luck! The Environmental Protection Agency is hosting a webinar that will provide a basic primer on environmental justice (EJ) methodologies, which can be used by state practitioners during National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review and other environmental impact assessments.

It will also build on this foundation with presentations regarding the State of Alaska's efforts to address health issues in environmental impact assessment and the State of Kentucky's efforts to address transportation-related community impacts.
