U.S. EPA National Environmental Justice Community Engagement Calls

Event Date: 
August 20, 2024 to September 17, 2024

The purpose of these calls is to inform the public about the US Environmental Protection Agency's environmental justice work and enhance opportunities to maintain an open dialogue with environmental justice advocates. The calls first began in 2010 and were a valuable tool for EPA to learn about environmental justice needs in communities around the country. As the Biden-Harris Administration has placed environmental justice at the center of the national agenda, the Agency is relaunching these calls as a first step towards reestablishing meaningful and engaging participation with community groups and the public. This direct dialogue will strengthen the integration of EJ into all that we do as we pursue achieving meaningful improvements on the ground for communities.

EPA invites Environmental Justice (EJ) advocates to participate in the next National Environmental Justice Community Engagement Call taking place on Tuesday, August 20, 2024 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time). These calls are free and open to the public.

Tentative Agenda:

  • Community Spotlight - Community Infrastructure Center Demo
  • Office of Air Quality and Planning Standards (OAQPS) Regulatory Updates
  • Inflation Reduction Act Roadshow Update

Also please mark your calendars for upcoming calls on July 16, August 20 and September 17.

Due to limited space, participation in these calls will be on a first come, first-served basis. Pre-registration is highly suggested, but not required. If you are unable to join a call,  meeting materials and a recording of the meeting will be posted to this page after each call.
