Concurrent Session D2 - Community Engagement through Community Air Monitoring and the Implementation of an Environmental Justice Training Curriculum

It is a widely known fact that exposure to air pollution has deleterious impacts on health outcomes. Often times, communities of color and of low-income are at higher risk of exposure to the highest concentrations of air pollution. The Community Steering Committee (CSC) in San Bernardino/Muscoy (SBM) have combined these tools with community-based participatory research to empower communities of color and low-income communities to collect and interpret their own environmental health data to advocate for change in their communities.This training consisted of a primer on air quality, air pollution, and environmental justice, as well as applied practices in deciphering air monitor data reports and linking findings to policy recommendations.
