Please join us for our 10th Annual Executive Leadership Institute. The Institute offers the best and brightest thinking in the green and healthy housing movement and innovative financing. It stands as the preeminent annual meeting of practitioners implementing an integrated health and energy based housing intervention system through GHHI and will provide opportunities for educational sessions, direct dialogue with leaders from key sectors, cross-sector discussions, peer exchange and networking.
You are invited to join the Green & Healthy Homes Initiative and WE ACT for Environmental Justice for Town Hall Conversation among advocates on Monday, April 12th at 2:00pm ET. The discussion, led by GHHI President and CEO Ruth Ann Norton and WE ACT Director of Federal Legislative Affairs Kerene Tayloe, will center on maximizing the opportunity to eliminate lead poisoning and advance racial equity and environmental justice, through the proposed American Jobs Plan and other legislative initiatives to advance racial equity and environmental justice through investments in communities.
As part of this effort, we are also asking you and your organization to sign on to a Letter of Support for the Environmental Justice Legacy Pollution Cleanup Act of 2021. This newly proposed federal legislation is designed to advance racial equity and environmental justice through $200 billion in total housing infrastructure investments in communities, including commitments of $45 billion in lead paint hazard remediation, $45 billion in lead service line replacement, and $1 billion to Native American communities to address housing related health and safety hazards.
