AAEA President at EJ in America 2010 Conference

The Fourth Annual State of Environmental Justice in America 2010 Conference was a great success. This annual conference embodies the hopes and dreams of community activists and government agencies in terms of providing a consistent venue for addressing national environmental justice issues. The environmental justice movement longed for such an annual gathering and now it is an institution.
