Happy to work with Chair Raúl Grijalva and front line environmental justice, health equity, and civil rights communities on the Summit . . .
The first convening of its kind, this summit will provide a venue for community activists and environmental justice practitioners to communicate their needs to members of Congress and their staff, who will commit directly to addressing longstanding inequities in economically oppressed and politically marginalized communities. The conversation will produce a set of principles to inform environmental justice legislation to be introduced later this Congress.
