U.S. Department of Transportation Public Meeting on Justice40
November 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
One event on November 16, 2021 at 12:00 pm
On November 9 and November 16, at 12:00pm ET, the U.S Department of Transportation (USDOT) will host virtual public meetings related to the Justice40 Initiative. During these interactive meetings, you will hear from USDOT leaders about the Justice40 Initiative and be asked for input on it. Advanced registration is required
From day one, the Biden-Harris Administration named racial equity and climate as immediate priorities and have called on a whole-of-government approach to address two of the most important and urgent challenges of our time.
Of course, these issues are related, often intersecting, and so the Administration has created the Justice40 Initiative, which aims to deliver 40% of the overall benefits of relevant federal investments to disadvantaged communities.
Both meetings will be open to the public, but content will differ based on the expected prior knowledge of participants. Members of impacted communities are encouraged to participate, as are potential USDOT funding recipients such as state, regional, and local government agencies, tribal nations, academic institutions, community-based, non-profit, and private-sector organizations.
We hope you will join us for these public meetings – and help spread the word.
