SATURDAY: EPA Administrator to Deliver Remarks at Third Annual Broccoli Festival


WASHINGTON - On Saturday, April 25, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy will give remarks at the Third Annual Broccoli City Festival's Earth Day celebration. Administrator McCarthy will speak about EPA's efforts to implement President Obama's Climate Action Plan by building more resilient communities and curbing the carbon pollution fueling climate change through its proposed Clean Power Plan.

At the core of EPA's mission is an unwavering pursuit of environmental justice. Too often, America's low-income and minority communities bear the brunt of our country's pollution, so EPA is taking historic action to fight the economic and public health risks of a changing climate by cutting carbon pollution from power plants because pollution and climate impacts are a barrier to economic opportunity, blocking the path to middle-class security.

Since debuting in 2013, the Broccoli Fest has continued a tradition of bringing together policy makers, business leaders, acclaimed musicians and community stakeholders to highlight solutions to environmental challenges.
