PA Climate Equity Table

April 13, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join the PA Climate Equity Table for a Popular Education Session on the EJ Policy on Wednesday, April 13th at 6 PM where we learn more about the significance of the EJ Policy, how it’s helped in our past campaigns, and connect this to other opportunities for advancing environmental justice in the state. We’ll also hear stories from community members who will share why public participation matters and get ourselves prepared to testify during the public comment period.

Background: In March 2022, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection released their draft Environmental Justice Policy on Public Participation (EJ Policy), which has been a critical instrument for guaranteeing that environmental justice communities can engage and push back against permitting for an especially toxic facility or industry in their communities. Now we have a chance to give our testimony on the revised EJ Policy during the public comment period which will be open through April and May.
