National Association of Black Journalists


On August 7, Administrator Jackson asked the National Association of Black Journalists for help in communicating the impacts of environmental issues on communities of color across the country. The Administrator laid out the ways that environmental challenges contribute to other challenges faced by low income communities across the country – how unclean air and water drive up health care costs, put children at risk and undermine economic growth. The Administrator conveyed her belief that “environmentalism goes hand-in-hand with traditional civil rights and social justice issues in our community.” Remarks
