Environmental Justice Plan March 2021 Brainstorming Meeting

Posted by Meredith Moore on March 1, 2021

The Environmental Justice Working Group met on 2-26-2021 (meeting minutes attached) and discussed the next steps to move forward with environmental justice planning. These include: 

  • Review EJ plan framework and provide initial comments/feedback and think about what you wish existed
  • Review key indices that we know we can change/have control over (e.g., trees in Urbana but not influence over interstate commerce or international trade)
  • Revisit initial indicators of resilience document which address some broad environmental justice categories; review this document and give some thought to these categories (how can we address specific challenges and solutions, what data is needed to tackle these? e.g., review local control such as emergency shelters)
  • As you are researching and/or reflecting on this, consider a health angle and the overlap of environmental justice challenges
