Session 2: Facets of Environmental Justice: Socially Vulnerable Communities and Engaging Latino Communities
Speakers: Cassandra Johnson Gaither, Research Social Scientist, USDA Forest Service and Tamberly Conway, Conservation Education Specialist, USDA Forest Service.
Summary: Natural resource management agencies and organizations are increasingly implementing strategies to achieve environmental justice in programs, policies, planning, and public participation. But, what is environmental justice exactly? Join this webinar session to learn how environmental justice issues go beyond disproportionate exposure to environmental hazards in low income, minority communities. Environmental justice also includes meeting the needs of underserved communities by increasing: access to decision-making processes, access to environmental benefits, and access to technical assistance and appropriate outreach efforts.
