EPA Video Contest :: The Faces of the Grassroots :: Environmental Justice Stories :: Apps due April 8

The Faces of the Grassroots contest is an opportunity for ameteur and professional videographers to publicly exhibit creativity, environmental justice stories, and connect with others working to raise awareness of the movement.



“Faces of the Grassroots will help EPA expand the conversation on environmentalism and work for environmental justice,” said Charles Lee, director of the Office of Environmental Justice.
