No prior or specific expertise is required. Read more here if you are interested in joining the council.
The Community Council for Environmental Justice and Air Quality (CCEJAQ) is an informal advisory group convened by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. It is made up of nine community members from across the state of Colorado. The council members represent diverse geographic areas, perspectives, demographics, and lived experiences.
The council meets virtually each month to provide input on key state air quality work and to help bolster the state’s commitment to environmental justice. Council members also work within their own communities to engage friends, neighbors, and local Coloradoans with environmental justice and air quality issues.
The council works collectively to lift up underrepresented voices in stakeholder processes to help the state improve outcomes for communities disproportionately impacted by pollution.
