EPA Region 7 EJ meeting – at the Ivanhoe Neighborhood Center

EPA Region 7 held an excellent EJ meeting last Thursday, at the beautiful Ivanhoe Neighborhood Center.

We reviewed and commented on the EJ 2020 Action Agenda, got a great demo of the EJSCREEN Environmental Justice Screening Tool, and much more.

My comment to EPA on the EJ2020 Action Plan?

Please explicitly identify goods movement (aka freight transportation) environmental health in overburdened neighborhoods as a priority.

Thanks to Charles Lee, Altheà Moses, Margaret May, Karim Dawani, Brendan Corazzin,  Elizabeth Kramer, and the rest of the folks who made the event happen!

And thank you to the Diesel Health Project folks who came!
