2021 Environmental Justice Legislation: Why do we need it?

February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join Beyond Toxics, NAACP Eugene/Springfield and NAACP Portland as we move forward much needed environmental justice legislation this session. In this meeting  you will go over HB 2488 – Equity and Climate in Land Use, and LC 2902 – Environmental Justice for Oregon: A concurrent resolution. Dive into why a resolution over a bill? Why we need equity in our land use laws and how historical injustices have impacted historically underserved communities.
