Environmental Advisory Councils and Environmental Justice


WeConservePA, in partnership with the Diversity Equity Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) Community, will convene a roundtable for current Pennsylvania Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) members to examine the topic of environmental justice at a municipal level. In this roundtable participants will share thoughts, experiences, and inquiries regarding the advancement of DEIJ within their communities. To properly ground our discussion, the roundtable will begin with a presentation on DEIJ terms and concepts to be given by Miica Patterson, Communications Director and Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer with Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage National Heritage Area.Topics of conversation could include: How can EACs heighten the participation of marginalized communities and amplify their needs? How can EACs best address environmental justice issues, and what obstacles do they face when doing so? Participants are invited to share additional questions or topics for the agenda in advance by contacting Carol Grayshaw ([email protected]) by May 15, 2022.
