 This webinar will feature NJDEP's Deputy Commissioner Olivia Glenn discussing New Jersey's recently passed landmark environmental justice legislation.

 A round table discussion with Passaic Mayor Hector Lora and Trenton Mayor W. Reed Gusciora will follow, focusing on how communities have long suffered the negative impacts of contaminated, industrial and commercial properties, and how transformation of those properties can create opportunities for social equity and environmental justice.   See http://bit.ly/TransformingBFs for registration!
