The History of Environmental Racism in Colorado report has a lot of great information and the report will be available for public comment soon.

This report and event are part of CDPHE’s work to identify “historically disproportionately impacted communities,” as defined in Colorado’s Environmental Justice Act (HB21-1266). This report is one tool that will help CDPHE to determine how to put in place the Environmental Justice Act.

We welcome all feedback. See you online or in person!
