About the EPA-CBC Environmental Justice Tour:
In January 2010, the Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson announced plans to visit communities impacted by environmental degradation and pollution. The joint EPA-CBC Environmental Justice Tour will visit areas throughout the country to highlight environmental justice challenges faced by all communities. The tour will kick off in Mississippi with visits to Greenville and Jackson in January and hosted by Congressman Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss). South Carolina marks the second stop in the tour and will include meetings and public events in the cities of Spartanburg, Columbia, North Charleston and Aiken. Upcoming tour stops will include New York, Georgia, Michigan and Missouri, among other states.
