How can local policymakers ensure the health and safety of communities facing legacies of environmental racism?  Join us as we explore different environmental justice tools and policies that support communities of color who are disproportionately burdened by toxic pollution.  We will discuss how communities can prevent diesel exhaust impacts from the rapidly growing goods-movement industry, transition from oil and gas infrastructure to zero-emission technology, and incorporate environmental justice practices in local city planning and zoning.
