Exploring Climate, Health, & Equity Within the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act of 2021
Wednesday, June 8, 2022 | Virtual | 3:00 pm Eastern/12:00 PM Pacific
Join us for an overview of our recently released policy brief and guide to the bipartisan infrastructure law that was recently signed into law in November. The $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act of 2021 will have significant implications for the climate and our health.
To help health professionals advocate for implementation of infrastructure funding in ways that best promote health and health equity, and keep our climate safe, this brief and webinar provide an overview of the components of the new law that are most relevant to climate change and health.
We will walk through the sections of the brief, have time for Q&A, and brainstorm ways that advocates can start to engage in the implementation process at the local and state levels.
