ARB to Hold Environmental Justice Workshop


OAKLAND -- Tuesday, November 13, the California Environmental Protection Agency's Air Resources Board (ARB) will hold a public meeting to review proposed Environmental Justice Policies and Actions.

Tuesday, November 13
6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Facilities Management

The goal of these policies and actions is to ensure the fair treatment of people of all races, cultures, and incomes with respect to environmental laws and practices. For these policies to address the concerns of all Californians, we need to hear from everyone!

The Air Resources Board is a Department of the California Environmental Protection Agency. ARBís mission is to promote and protect public health, welfare, and ecological resources through effective reduction of air pollutants while recognizing and considering effects on the economy. The ARB oversees all air pollution control efforts in California to attain and maintain health based air quality standards.

The energy challenge facing California is real. Every Californian needs to take immediate action to reduce energy consumption. For a list of simple ways you can reduce demand and cut your energy cost, see our website at http://www.arb.ca.gov.
