Democratizing Environmental Data Event on Oct.22nd

Democratizing Environmental Data: Panel Discussion & Report Release

On Thursday, October 22nd, from 6:00-7:30 pm EST, join the Environmental Enforcement Watch team, activists, scientists, policy makers, and more for a discussion on the need for transparency in federal environmental data and how to build more just data infrastructures. We’ll show, for the first time, how well environmental laws are being followed and enforced in the congressional districts of representatives who oversee the EPA. Then we’ll lead a training on the new data tool developed by the Environmental Enforcement Watch to view environmental enforcement data in your area.

JPB Senior Fellow Sara Ann Wylie is part of the team who have documented how much violations of environmental laws increased and EPA enforcement decreased in the districts of the 76 Representatives and Senators who oversee the EPA. Don’t miss the release event, register here:
