National Environmental Justice Conference & Training Program

Wednesday, March 9, 2022 – Friday, March 11, 2022
Washington Marriott Metro Center, Washington, DC

It’s no secret that some communities are disproportionately impacted by climate change, pollution, and natural disasters.  Abt is proud to participate in the 2022 National Environmental Justice Conference & Training Program which will address the challenges facing such communities and identify solutions they can implement while partnering with governments, municipalities, tribes, and faith-based groups, and our own organization. We understand that finding the right solutions requires bold thinking and integrated multidisciplinary strategies, and we look forward to sharing those approaches throughout the conference.
