EPA Webinar: National PFAS Roadmap – Update for Tribes & Indigenous Peoples
Are you familiar with Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) compounds? Do you have concerns about PFAS impacting tribes and want to learn more about the sources of PFAS near you and how tribal and indigenous communities may be impacted? Do you want to learn more about EPA’s plan to address PFAS?
This webinar will provide an introduction to PFAS, outline information on the potential impacts of PFAS in Indian country and in indigenous communities, discuss the value of mapping tools, and provide an overview of EPA’s Strategic Roadmap — a national strategy to confront PFAS pollution.
Date & Time: January 18, 2022, 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM (PT), 2:30 PM – 4:00 PM (ET)
- Matt Klasen, PFAS Council Manager, Office of Water, U.S. EPA
- Mark Junker, Tribal Response Coordinator, Sac & Fox Nation Environmental Department, Sac & Fox Nation of Missouri in Kansas and Nebraska
- Danny Gogal, Tribal and Indigenous Peoples Program Manager, Office of Environmental Justice, U.S. EPA (Facilitator)
PFAS are a group of manufactured chemicals that have been used in industry and consumer products since the 1940s, and thousands of different PFAS have been developed. One concern is that many PFAS break down very slowly and can build up in people, animals, and the environment over time.
This webinar is part of the U.S. EPA Environmental Justice Webinar Series for Tribes and Indigenous Peoples — to build the capacity of tribal governments, indigenous peoples and other environmental justice practitioners, and discuss priority environmental justice issues of interest to tribes and indigenous peoples.
Please note that the webinar is planned to be recorded and is expected to be available on this EPA website a few weeks after the webinar.
