Secretary's Environmental Justice and Equity Board

"I challenge [the Environmental Justice and Equity] board, and all of you, to stand shoulder to shoulder with us and acknowledge that we all are responsible. You too must pledge to work for inclusion, demand equity and celebrate the diversity of the people of our great state. With that simple acknowledgment, together we will protect our natural resources, our economic interests, and our communities so that ALL North Carolinians will have clean air and clean water for today, tomorrow and future generations to come." 

-Secretary Michael S. Regan, May 2, 2018
