EPA and Congressional Black Caucus Announce Environmental Justice Tour

The EPA and the Congressional Black Caucus (Energy and Environment Taskforce) have scheduled environmental justice tours in many states across the nation. Expanding the environmental conversation and environmental justice are key priorities for the EPA. It is great to see this collaboration between the Obama administration and the CBC. The CBC Energy and Environment Taskforce addresses issues on green jobs, alternative energy and enviromental justice as they relate to African Americans. (News to me.) Last week, officials were in Mississippi, today they are scheduled to be in New Orleans. Click here to learn more about the initiative.
