This presentation was delivered as part of the Tribal Lands and Environment Forum: Virtual Gathering in August 2020 by Daniel Gogal, Jean Belille, and Gregory Davis, USEPA.
Participants will learn about the core principles of the EPA Policy on Environmental Justice for Working with Federally Recognized Tribes and Indigenous Peoples, and how some of these principles were applied by EPA in working collaboratively with the Northern Cheyenne Tribe in the meaningful involvement of the public in a Brownfields redevelopment project. The project included getting meaningful input from elders, children, tribal council, educational institutions, and the economic development association. This session is intended to help tribes consider ways they can enhance or expand their meaningful engagement and public participation processes in their environmental decision-making, and become more familiar with EPA’s policy to work with tribes to advance EJ.
