Leveraging State Law to Address Local Pollution Burden

June 20, 10 am

Join us for a webinar to explore how pollution burdens disproportionately impact frontline communities and the innovative state-level policy solutions that are making a way forward. This event will delve into the structural limitations of federal laws, like the Clean Air Act, to protect communities from harmful pollution emissions. We will explore how advocates are shifting their focus to state-level permitting laws that must account for cumulative impacts and total pollution burden of affected communities. Learn from the experiences of advocates in New York whose advocacy is creating more equitable environmental protections and how lessons learned may apply to your context. We’ll also discuss how these models can drive impactful change for the future of the environmental justice movement. This webinar will also feature a dedicated Q&A session.
