Opportunities to Advance Sustainability and Environmental Justice at SCAG in 2015

In November 2014, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) hosted an Environmental Justice workshop with the goal of addressing environmental justice and equity issues within SCAG’s 2016 update of the Regional Transportation Plan and Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS). Participants agreed that there is a need to create a strong, strategic and intentional vision of community participation, engagement and partnership as the RTP/SCS update begins. Yet there was still some uncertainty about the role of SCAG in implementing sustainable and equitable policies throughout the region, and how stakeholders can participate in its processes.

As a follow up to SCAG’s workshop, ClimatePlan, MoveLA, Leadership Counsel, Natural Resources Defense Council and the Safe Routes to School National Partnership are joining together to host “Opportunities to Advance Sustainability and Environmental Justice at SCAG in 2015”.

This convening is an opportunity for advocates throughout the SCAG region to learn more about SCAG’s role in regional planning and partner together to create clear goals and strategies.  Attendance is free, lunch is included, and travel stipends are available.
