Understanding Environmental Justice through two EPA tools: EJScreen and EnviroAtlas Webinar Archive
This webinar, recorded on June 15th, 2022, highlights EJScreen and EnviroAtlas with an environmental justice focus. Environmental justice (EJ) is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin or income with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies.
EJScreen is an EJ mapping and screening tool that provides a nationally consistent dataset and approach for combining environmental and demographic indicators. EnviroAtlas is a data-rich, web-based decision support tool that combines maps, analysis tools, downloadable data, and informational resources. EJScreen and EnviroAtlas can be used together, and this webinar demonstrates how to use EJScreen data in EnviroAtlas and vice versa, with a focus on EJ issues.
