Webinar: Green Zones Initiatives

August 30, 2017

Time: 2:00 pm PDT
RSVP here

Join PSR-Los Angeles for a webinar on Green Zones, a community-based approach to address environmental injustice and cleanup heavily polluted communities.

Dozens of disadvantaged communities across the state are disproportionately burdened with high concentrations of environmental hazards, and inadvertently, high rates of poor health outcomes. Unchecked development and poor zoning practices in the interest of political and economic powers have only increased the amount of environmental stressors in these communities and reduced the collective power of the residents who live, work, and play there.  

Join us on Wednesday, August 30th at 2:00 PM for a free webinar to learn more about an initiative known as "Green Zones," which uses comprehensive, community-based solutions to reduce existing pollution and environmental hazards, promote future sustainable development, and increase community participation in local decision-making.

A number of Green Zones initiatives have been successfully piloted across the state—including right here in our own backyard through the CUGU Ordinance—and they appear to be an increasingly common and effective way to address environmental injustice and clean up heavily polluted communities. This webinar will serve as a great opportunity to learn more about what Green Zones are, how they've been implemented thus far, and what this program could potentially look like in certain parts of Los Angeles. 

Speakers:

  • Tiffany Eng - Ms. Eng is CEJA's Green Zones Program Manager and has done extensive work developing and executing Green Zones programs across the state. She has a Master's in City and Regional Planning from UC Berkeley.
  • Carolina Martinez  - Ms. Martinez is the Associate Director for Policy for the Environmental Health Coalition, which she joined in 2010 as the Policy Advocate for the Toxic-Free Neighborhood Campaign's efforts in National City. She has a Master's in Urban Planning and in Latin American Studies.
