Environmental Justice Blog

AAEA has been managing and producing the Environmental Justice Blog for five years.  The first article was published on December 30, 2006 and featured Samara Swanston.  The blog was created to address environmental justice issues as a supplement to The State of Environmental Justice in America Conference(s).  The conference brings together federal employees, academics, business and industry, non-profit organizations, faith-based organizations, local community activists and others to participate in dialog on achieving equality of environmental protection.  The first conference was held in May 2007.  The 6th Annual State of Environmental Justice in America Conference is scheduled for April 3-5, 2012.

AAEA will continue to publish the blog and support the conference.  In addition to the blog, AAEA has been a cosponsor of the conference.  We have also conducted forums on Nuclear Power and Environmental Justice and Converting Carbon Dioxide Into Gasoline.

AAEA compliments John Rosenthall for coordinating the conference for the past five years and we look forward to working with him on the 2012 conference.
