The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s second State EJ Training Webinar session for 2020 will focus on “Incorporating Equity in Disaster Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Programs”. In light of current severe weather events both proliferating and intensifying, this webinar is extremely relevant and timely. It will feature presentations from:

  • Florida Department of Environmental Protection – on social vulnerability assessment,
  • Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs – on the state’s equity investments in its climate adaptation programs, and
  • North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality – on the inspiring story of the relocation of the historic African American township of Princeville, NC

This session, scheduled on October 21 at 1:00 EST, is now open for registration.
