Environmental Justice Policy Update
In partnership with Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN), we published an issue brief on the impact of climate change on Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AANHPI). That issue brief was submitted to US EPA to help the agency learn more about the specific impact of climate change on AANHPIs.
Members of the CYPHER Leadership Team also participated in the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's 44th Annual Legislative Conference (ALS), held Sept. 24–27, 2014, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC. ALC is the premier conference of its kind nationwide, offering more than 70 forums on public policy issues facing African Americans. CYPHER participated on a panel on community engagement in climate resilience innovation.
