Andrea Harris Social, Economic, Environmental, and Health Equity Task Force Listening Session

Sept. 29, 5:00 PM: Task Force Listening Session on Env. Justice

Established under Executive Order No. 143, the Andrea Harris Social, Economic, Environmental, and Health Equity Task Force addresses the social, environmental, economic, and health disparities in communities of color disproportionally impacted by COVID-19. The Task Force is named in honor of the late civil rights activist, Andrea Harris, who dedicated her life to eliminating disparities in North Carolina, co-founding the non-profit Institute of Minority Economic Development in Durham and serving on the state’s Advisory Council for Historically Underutilized Businesses. The five focus areas of the Task Force are:

  • Access to Healthcare
  • Economic Opportunity and Business Development
  • Educational Opportunity
  • Environmental Justice and Inclusion
  • Patient Engagement

The public is invited to share feedback for the Environmental Justice and Inclusion Subcommittee of the Andrea Harris Social, Economic, Environmental, and Health Equity Task Force. Comments on draft goals, including needed changes to state law to better address environmental justice, equity and inclusion concerns are welcomed. 

  • Members of the public can sign up for a two-minute time slot to offer input on recommendations related to the five focus areas.
  • Once individuals sign up, they will receive a link to log on to and participate in the session.
  • The public comments session can also be streamed live on the NC Department of Administration’s YouTube channel.
