Community Conversations Event Series

The Biden administration’s unprecedented environmental justice investments are transforming despair into optimism and into tangible benefits in communities, including clean air and water, jobs, improved public health, and clean and affordable energy.

Hosted by the ReGenesis Institute, this in-person series of Community Conversations will provide local community leaders and state and local government officials information on how federal funding opportunities created by the Biden administration’s Justice40 Initiative, the Inflation Reduction Act, and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act can improve lives and livelihoods. With footage from the inaugural Community Conversation event in Spartanburg, South Carolina, this video showcases how future events in communities across the country will highlight how federal investments can be used to clean up former industrial sites and use them to develop local businesses; to construct a solar farm that would provide energy cost savings to the community; to invest in job training programs; and to spur other projects that create local jobs, improve public health, and tackle climate change and environmental injustice.

Next Community Conversations event: June 26, Albuquerque, New Mexico
