Environmental Justice caucus formed in OKC

What is Environmental Justice?


Oklahoma City prepares to sponsor a newly-formed Environmental Justice Caucus.

The city announced that those interested in environmental justice can register to attend a free caucus at 5 p.m. Aug. 15 at the Oklahoma City Convention Center.

In the announcement, the city explained the locally-driven discussion will allow people to share ideas, build relationships and communicate directly with the Environmental Protection Agency.


The caucus is also part of the EPA’s National Brownfields Training Conference.

The National Brownfields Training Conference is the largest event in the nation focused on environmental revitalization and economic redevelopment. Held every two years, the National Brownfields Conference attracts over 2,000 stakeholders in brownfields redevelopment and cleanup to share knowledge about sustainable reuse and celebrate the EPA brownfields program’s success.
