Join this all-star panel for a snapshot of the state of environmental health and justice right now, ahead of the new White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council meeting on May 13. Panelists will discuss what's happening in local communities and at the national level, and will offer story ideas for the coming year on both the problems and solutions to the challenges of protecting environmental health and equity. Following Q&A with the speakers, SEJ will take your questions about the Fund for Environmental Journalism story grants on this topic.
