Webinar: Toxic Release Inventory for Communities

Introduction to the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) for Communities
November 8, 2012  1:00 – 2:30 pm EST

Next week, EPA and the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS) will present a webinar for community grassroots groups and others who serve as community leaders about how to access and use EPA’s Toxics Release Inventory data. TRI can help address local community concerns about toxic chemical emissions and associated environmental impacts. Webinar participants will learn about TRI basics, as well as about EPA’s recent pilot projects with four communities, and will also hear from a grassroots group which, as a result of the pilot project, is now using TRI data to build on its ongoing efforts to protect the community from industrial pollution.

Featured speakers will include:
  • Shelley Fudge, TRI Community Engagement Initiative lead in US EPA’s Washington, DC Office
  • Lily Lee, the TRI Coordinator for US EPA’s San Francisco Office
  • Erin Heaney, Executive Director of the Clean Air Coalition of Western New York
All are welcome to participate!  For more information, including soon to be posted agenda, speaker bios, etc. please visit:
