This report back event will be in place of ACE monthly member meeting. Event details (location, possibility of streaming on FB) are still being planned so please check back for updates. Draft goals include:
New State-wide Environmental Justice Policy Issued
The Secretariat of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) released in February, at long last, a revised Massachusetts Environmental Justice Policy. It can be found here: http://www.mass.gov/eea/docs/eea/ej/2017-environmental-justice-policy.pdf
What is it?
We are asking groups to come to this event and bring community members and residents to give the city feedback on what they see as barriers to fair housing. It is really important that the city gets to hear from the community before they draft their first Assessment of Fair Housing (AFH) report.
