Environmental Justice means making sure that communities of every race, color, and income status receive the same protection from environmental and health hazards, and have equal access to the decision-making process about projects and policies impacting their lives to ensure a healthy environment in which to live, learn, and work.
At 6:30pm on Wednesday, March 9th, Mountainkeeper is hosting a webinar dedicated to broadening the understanding of EJ throughout our region, and examining how these issues impact our communities. Mountainkeeper's Environmental Justice Coordinator, Taylor Jaffe, will guide participants through her comprehensive Catskills EJ landscape analysis, which details where communities are most exposed to tainted drinking water and waste contamination, among other environmental hazards.
