The National Wildlife Federation has played a key role in helping the federal government shape its recent, historic financial commitments to improving infrastructure and enhancing equity in underserved communities, which are often hit hardest by the impacts of climate change, pollution, and failing infrastructure.

Join us for a discussion about some of the challenges and opportunities facing frontline communities with two of NWF’s environmental justice leaders—Rebeca Villegas and Gabrielle Rivera—and with Dr. Crystal Romeo Upperman, Vice President, Social Performance & Resilience Lead for the Americas at AECOM, a global firm devoted to sustainable infrastructure, and author of National Wildlife magazine’s recent article about air pollution Breathing Deep.
