The Environmental Equity Investigation will be the basis for an EJ Mitigation Plan, to direct specific changes in City policies, practices, and programs. The City Council has approved a budget for a consultant to lead this investigation. EJE conducts regular listening sessions and community forums where residents can discuss EJ and environmental equity issues, with the goal of identifying how they impact the quality of life in BIPOC and low-income neighborhoods. The information we gather from these listening sessions will inform the City's investigation on where to focus its attention.
EJE created a step-by-step Playbook to help you solve environmental inequities that affect you.
