The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s second State EJ Training Webinar session for 2020 will focus on “Incorporating Equity in Disaster Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Programs” .

- Florida Department of Environmental Protection – on social vulnerability assessment,
- Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs – on the state’s equity investments in its climate adaptation programs, and
- North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality – on the inspiring story of the relocation of the historic African American township of Princeville, NC
