An ELI Research Seminar

As Executive Director of Air Alliance Houston, Matthew Tejada, Ph.D., advocated on behalf of communities to reduce air pollution in Houston. He worked with local organizations, government agencies, and businesses to find ways to reduce pollution in overburdened communities. In January 2013, EPA's Assistant Administrator, Cynthia Giles and Lisa Garcia, the Senior Advisor to the Administrator announced that Mr. Tejada would be the new Director of the Office of Environmental Justice (OEJ).

With this meet-and-greet session, ELI presented an opportunity to hear about Director Tejada’s priorities for OEJ and to ask questions of the incoming director.
