Webinar: Achieving Justice 40 through Community Engagement

February 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In the pursuit of a more just and inclusive society, the concept of “Justice 40” has emerged as a crucial framework. Justice 40 aims to ensure that at least 40% of the benefits from federal investments in areas such as clean energy, infrastructure, and environmental policies directly reach marginalized communities. This webinar explores the pivotal role of community engagement in achieving Justice 40, offering a comprehensive blueprint for empowering these communities and fostering equitable progress.
In this webinar, we will discuss the following:

  • Educate participants on the principles and goals of Justice 40 and its significance in achieving environmental and economic justice within communities.
  • Highlight real-world examples of successful community engagement efforts that align with Justice 40 principles, showcasing diverse approaches and outcomes.
  • Discuss the role of stakeholders, including government agencies, non-profit organizations, businesses, and community leaders, in driving meaningful community engagement.
