Dear Mr. Lee:
Voces Verdes would like to thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Draft EJ 2020 Action Agenda. We appreciate the efforts of your office in its outreach to us and to environmental justice organizations on this important issue.
Voces Verdes is a non-partisan network of Latino leaders committed to transforming and diversifying the voices working towards equitable action on climate change, clean, renewable energy, and towards a healthy, sustainable, prosperous future for all. Voces supports EJ 2020 and urges EPA to prioritize environmental justice. Our communities and the organizations working to ensure more just treatment should be recognized as critical to ensuring the ideals of Executive Order 12898 and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act are met.
We look forward to working with you to elevate these issues and to ensure that the most impacted are heard, and their needs addressed justly and equitably.
