APHA Environmental Justice Town hall 2019: Addressing Cumulative Impacts through Policy

The EJ Town Hall will focus on cumulative impacts – a central issue for advancing environmental justice and public health. While the EJ movement has moved this issue to the mainstream of environmental policy discussions, it has not been generally successful in moving government and policy makers to implement substantive policies in the area.

The EJ Town Hall will aid the development of such policies by increasing knowledge of the cumulative impacts issue in the APHA community and among EJ community leaders and decision makers. Learn the basics of the issue and how to map and measure cumulative impacts, make connections with frontline communities, and discuss policy ideas to address the issue on both a statewide and local level.
