Bring a lunch and join us for this webinar presented by the National Association of Environmental Professionals that will discuss Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations. The presentation will highlight Environmental Justice (EJ) successes in transportation and alternative energy projects from Georgia to California. We have only in-person viewing options available for this webinar. Otherwise, you have to register online at www.naep.com.

Speakers include:

  • Tim Hatton, AICP, HNTB Senior Environmental Manager, Georgia DOT's Office of Innovative Delivery/Multi-Modal Program
  • Elizabeth Poole, USEPA Region 5, EJ Analysis Specialist, Office of Regional Administrator, NEPA Implementation Section
  • Alexandra Thompson, ESA Managing Associate, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission/Community Benefits Program
  • Natural Resources Defense Council representative (TBD) will also present their EJ perspective.
Within our changing and somewhat uncertain times, there has never been a more important moment to profile innovations in complying with Executive Order 12898, Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations. This webinar showcases Environmental Justice (EJ) successes in transportation and alternative energy projects from Georgia to California in terms of sensitivity in outreach, accuracy in predicting disproportionately adverse impacts, and understanding true equity in investment. The webinar also highlights, through one of U.S.EPA's national experts, the EJ Screen tool which has recently been enhanced. The U.S.EPA representative will also speak to a new EPA publication on best practices and project successes for EJ analysis. U.S.EPA defines EJ as the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income. 

NWAEP is offering this webinar in-person in Portland at HDR's office at 1001 SW 5th Avenue, Suite 1800 and in Seattle at Anchor QEA's office at 720 Olive Way, Suite 1900.
