USDOT to Hold Environmental Justice Training

Posted on: June 20th, 2012 by Carrie Kissel

On Tuesday, July 17, the U.S. Department of Transportation will hold a one-day training event on Implementing Environmental Justice Strategies.  This training is targeted to help transportation practitioners identify challenges and successes of applying environmental justice principles in a multi-modal transportation environment.  Join colleagues from state and local DOTs, MPOs, transit agencies and high speed rail authorities to learn about recent changes to the US DOT EJ policies and hear case studies on the application of environmental justice.  Featuring Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez and senior leadership from US DOT, this day-long training will be an opportunity to share promising practices for conducting EJ assessments, learn about tools and strategies for public engagement, and to identify policy and program solutions to address the emerging needs in the field of environmental justice.

This training will be held on Tuesday July 17th, from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., at U.S. DOT headquarters in Washington DC (1200 New Jersey Ave SE). Registration will open at 8:30 a.m.  There is no cost to participate but space is limited. (Note: A boxed lunch will be available to purchase on-site for $10).   Please RSVP to [email protected] (EJ null@null dot NULL.gov) and include your name, organization, title, email address, and phone number.
