Environmental Justice and Natural Disasters/COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall Meeting: West, Southwest, Rocky Mountains, and Pl
Time & Location
About the Event
The Federal Interagency Working Group (IWG) on Environmental Justice (EJ) and Natural Disaster Subcommittee is hosting a two-hour virtual Town Hall Meeting to focus on the West, Southwest, Rocky Mountains, and Plains Regions on Monday, March 29, 2021.
The purpose is to gain a better understanding of how natural disasters and COVID-19 impact minority, low-income, overburdened, and underserved communities, and how the federal government can better provide support to these communities to prepare and respond to their needs before, during, and after natural disasters.
The desired outcome is to gather lessons learned and best practices from on the ground voices, as well as identify action steps which the federal government can work on to better assist overburdened and underserved communities.
