NCNG Spring Environmental Policy Webinar


Meeting Description:

The North Carolina Legislature returns for its short session in May, and one of its most pressing issues is to address the growing environmental and public health crisis of emerging contaminants in water sources – as well as possibly in food and the air. Contamination above health limits have been found in communities like Fayetteville and Wilmington, while similar contamination at lower levels have also been identified in Greensboro and Cary. This growing situation is forcing lawmakers to grapple with how to respond.  

That’s in addition to updating the state budget for the coming year – and preparing for fall elections in which every legislative seat has a Republican and Democrat filed to run.

It will be a memorable year, with potentially significant implications for North Carolina’s environmental and public health protections. Join Brian Buzby, Executive Director of the N.C. Conservation Network, for an informative webinar on the political landscape and the environmental issues to be discussed by the N.C. General Assembly this year.

This event is for NCNG member grantmakers only. If you represent a grantmaking organization that is not currently a member of NCNG and would like to participate, please contact Sarah Mann Willcox at swillcox@ncgrantmakers.org.
