Sign Up for a Webinar on EJSCREEN: EPA's New EJ Screening Tool
EPA's Office of Environmental Justice is hosting three webinars to introduce the public to EJSCREEN, EPA's soon-to-be-released environmental justice screening and mapping tool. The tool provides powerful data and mapping capabilities to display demographic and environmental information for all areas of the United States, and includes a method for combining environmental and demographic data into 'EJ indexes,' to assist in identifying areas in the country that have higher pollution burdens and vulnerable populations.
EPA is sharing EJSCREEN with the public to broaden its impact, build transparency, and foster collaboration on a shared commitment to protect American communities. Each of the three sneak peeks will consist of an overview and demo of the tool, followed by a question and answer session. The webinars will be held on the following dates and times:
* May 12th: 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Eastern
* May 28th: 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. Eastern
* June 3rd: 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Eastern
Please share this event with your network and anyone who may be interested in attending. If you are in need of special accommodations, please contact the event organizer within at least one week of the event.
