THIS IS WONDERFUL, great work. We have the highest concentration of air regulated facilities in NYS. We are located in Tonawanda, Ny and have 50 facilities in our small community. It is better now because ran a direct campaign against a foundry coke facility (Tonawanda Coke), csresources.org. However , this was one of first main concerns about the cumulative impact to our community. This gives me hope that this kind of change is possible!
I appreciate your persistence — and the insistence to keep the communities actually impacted in the lead! Don’t stop being a nerd!
Nerd pride! Me too. Im cool w that.
Feel free to post your questions here too!
I love shall deny - what we need!!!
Congratulations! Can you share names of your legislative champions - representatives in the state legislature who were committed to this?
I’m being asked how white allies can be helpful in the process of rulemaking for this bill – and anything else related to it.
The National Lawyers Guild Environmental Justice Committee will spread word of your good work near and far --- to replicate this law elsewhere and request that you speak to us …. Joel R Kupferman email@example.com
yes, we need to help each other. feel free to contact me/us cause we have had success - in a bit different way. be happy to share our resources/info jackiejames.org
how much push back came from the huge industry directly?
Thank you for your answer!
Can you say again what ‘the definition’ is?
and keeping all groups together, best results can be rolled out in other areas of the country.
What burden will the community bear for oversight in seeing this in implementation?
can you create a travelling group who can present regularly to governors, state legislators, disadvantaged communities?
What about the rule the DEP is discussing to allow permitting if a polluting project will bring benefit to the community in which it seeks to locate?
This presentation has been very helpful. We need additional gatherings on the New Jersey experience. One proposal is to identify states that have formed Environmental Justice Advisory Committees and have a similar convening for both grassroots organizations and members of the state EJ Advisory Board that have a grassroots perspective. We all here in NC could certainly make that happen in NC. VA also has one as well. Both states formed them during and after the successful campaign to stop the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Our state advisory board is finally becoming empowered to advocate for changes. We need to elevate that discourse to turn conversational commitment on EJ to significant law.
Mac, agree. Oregon has an Environmental Justice Task Force as well, appointed by the Governor working across all state agencies.
I am working with the Lenape Nation- Turtle Clan, and I am certain that they want to work with you. Joel R Kupferman
that is why we are doing this today to begin to get the word out.
