May 31st Community Dialogue hosted by CEED

As a result of the pressure to build an Environmental Justice (EJ) focus on the Minneapolis climate action plan, the city and the department of sustainability have agreed to a include an EJ working work in the planning process. The EJ working group will also have 2 seats on the overall steering committee.

Please attend the first mtg of Environmental Justice (EJ) Working Group of the Minneapolis Climate Action Planning process. The EJ Working Group will review the strategies and provide recommendations for the City’s 2012 Climate Action Plan.

This Climate Action Plan will have an effect on how the City is planning for more sustainable housing, transportation and waste. The EJ Working Group meetings are open to the public. Please Join Us!
