Webinar Wednesday: Environmental Justice Tools to Help Understand Your Community

March 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Environmental Justice Tools to Help Understand Your Community

This event will give a brief introduction to the environmental justice (EJ) movement nationally and in Pennsylvania, before drilling down to specific tools and policies that affect planning and land use in Pennsylvania around EJ. Planners will learn about the EJ Policy from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and how it may affect their work.  They will also be shown various national, state, and regional tools to better understand environmental justice concerns in the communities in which they work.  These tools can be used to get more detailed demographic information as well as to assist planners in completing grant application materials. These tools can better help planners understand their communities in ways that help meet the equity aspirations of the profession.

Equity CM credit is pending approval. You must attend the webinar live in order to earn CM credit.
