The PA Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will be hosting a nine-stop “listening tour” to hear residents’ perspectives on environmental justice (EJ). These sessions begin in the western part of the state on April 12th and 13th. The dates and locations of these meetings can be found here. The DEP will also be accepting written comments, which can be either mailed or emailed to DEP-OEJ@pa.gov by the end of May.
The Center for Coalfield Justice and FracTracker Alliance have collaborated to summarize current EJ policies in Pennsylvania. This is an excellent primer for the listening sessions -- come and testify!
4-6 p.m. at the Blakey Center, in the Hill District (1908 Wyle Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15219). RSVP online. More details and talking points here.
