Meet Some Of Our Environmental Justice Leads
Why our employees are excited about the USACE’s innovative efforts to ensure equity in water resource management? We asked, and this is what they had to say:
“Working in Environmental Justice and Tribal Affairs for the last 25 years and seeing the opportunity to help Justice40 communities address critical water related infrastructure needs has been a life-long dream come true. The agency and DOD have been leaders in creating a more inclusive environment and I’m proud to be a part of its transformation!"
-Jerica, Environmental Justice Program Manager
“I’m excited about USACE’s innovative efforts to ensure equity… Because we’re empowered to LEARN through increased EJ literacy and application, NETWORK to strengthen internally and externally for “one government,” ENGAGE by hearing from communities directly, and to LEAD by doing the right thing."
-Eileen, MSC Environmental Justice Coordinator
“We are excited about USACE's innovative efforts to ensure equity in water management because we value the role of all people in decision making processes that impact their communities."
-Andrew, District Environmental Justice Lead
