Invite to NEPA 10-5-19 Webinar & 10-19-19 Workshop By EPA | El Centro De La Raza (Room 310) | Sábado, 05. Outubro 2019

2 sessions regarding NEPA and Environmental Justice:

October 5 Webinar: 10 a.m. to 12 Noon (90 minute presentation with 30 minute Q&A)
October 19 **** to **** Workshop: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (30 minute lunch and informal conversation, short breaks throughout)

Background:
In continued support of Seattle-area community capacity-building and collaborative problem-solving efforts around issues of goods movement and environmental justice, the US EPA is providing a general overview of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the integration of environmental justice with NEPA.
This presentation is designed to introduce the NEPA process and how environmental justice can be considered efficiently, effectively and consistently during NEPA reviews. The NEPA process provides for public engagement and involvement as federal projects are being proposed. The goal of NEPA is to inform agency decision makers and the public in order to reach more sustainable outcomes on federal projects that maximize environmental and public health benefits and minimize adverse impacts. 
The presentation is being convened by the Region 10 EJ program and Goods Movement Committee of the Federal Interagency Working Group on Environmental Justice (EJ IWG) in collaboration with the EJ IWG NEPA Committee.
