The Environmental Justice Work Group (EJWG) brings together people in the watershed to help LISS actively move forward in its Environmental Justice implementation work and better serve the needs of minority and underrepresented communities who are disproportionately affected by environmental hazards.
LISS encourages all interested organizations, groups, and individuals to join the EJWG. If you would like to join, please email Jimena at [email protected] to be added to our group mailing list.
See Events & Meetings web page for announcements of upcoming committee meetings for MC, STAC, CAC, and work groups.
