Environmental Law Institute – Updates to Energy and Environmental Justice: A Fireside Chat

With environmental justice appearing in the news almost daily you may be wondering what actions agencies and members on the Hill have been taking to advance these principles. During this fireside chat we will start with the basics of environmental justice and then representatives from the Department of Energy, and the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee will share policy updates and what is to come.

Environmental Justice is at the forefront of many conversations across various industry sectors. But what specifically does it mean, and what steps are Congress and the Administration taking to advance these principles? In this fire-side chat, Moderator Arielle King with the Environmental Law Institute will sit down (virtually) with representatives from the Department of Energy, and the U.S. Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee to hear about ongoing work in the energy justice and environmental justice spaces. First, Arielle will give a brief overview of where we are with energy and environmental justice, and after painting the landscape will turn things over to our speakers to share their perspectives.

Join us for this timely and important discussion.

Arielle V. King, Environmental Justice Staff Attorney, Environmental Law Institute (Moderator)
Monisha Shah, Justice40 Fellow, Office of Economic Impact and Diversity, U.S. Department of Energy
Laura Gilliam, Senior Policy Advisor for Clean Air and Climate, U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works
