On December 4th, the Western Pennsylvania Regional Data Center hosted the first in a series of data user group conversations on the topic of environmental justice in partnership with the Allegheny County Health Department. The meeting was held at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health. Nearly thirty people joined us for the conversation. Participants came from government, academia, and nonprofit environmental organizations. In this blog post, I’ll share a few observations from the meeting and talk about next steps.
