Environmental Justice Agency Assessment Briefing Event

End: Friday, June 21, 2019 1:00 PM


The California Environmental Justice Alliance (CEJA) would like to invite you to attend our 3rd Annual Environmental Justice Agency Assessment Briefing on Friday, June 21st, 11am-1pm at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria - East Room on 828 I Street in Sacramento.

Join CEJA for an interactive discussion of our 2018 Environmental Justice Agency Assessment, listen to highlights and recommendations to better understand environmental justice principles and share ways to improve EJ implementation at state agencies and tools to better include EJ in agency work.

In order for any new statewide policies, including those diversifying decision-making at state agencies, to result in on-the-ground changes in communities most impacted by pollution, there must be aggressive, equitable implementation at California’s regulatory agencies.

To our knowledge, this assessment is the only one in the nation to look at how well state agencies develop, implement, and monitor policies that address environmental issues that impact low-income communities and communities of color.

Lunch will be provided. For more information, contact Eddie Moreno: eddie@caleja.org
