Detroit Mayor Dennis W. Archer To Host Environmental Justice

DETROIT, July 16 Detroit Mayor Dennis W. Archer and representatives from 
the United States Conference of Mayors will host United States 
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Carol M. Browner at a 
day-long environmental justice forum on Friday, July 17. 

Scheduled for 10:45 a.m. - 4 p.m. at Cobo Conference and Exhibition 
Center, the forum will provide an opportunity for our nation's mayors and 
the EPA to have an open dialogue which will explore their specific 
thoughts and recommendations on how the EPA can carry out its 
responsibility for evaluating Title VI administrative complaints
without jeopardizing urban economic redevelopment. 

The day will begin with a bus tour of several Detroit brownfield sites, 
and then move to Cobo for opening remarks by Mayor Archer, Administrator 
Browner, Mayor Pat McCrory, chair of the U.S. Conference of Mayors 
Energy and Environment Committee, and Donele Wilkins, executive director 
of Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice. Participants will then 
hear a series of presentations from attending mayors, their  
representatives and/or representatives from their business community. 

A working lunch will feature remarks by Elliott Laws, chairperson of 
Title VI Implementation Advisory Committee, and comments from 
representatives of the public and private sectors. A roundtable 
discussion will follow the presentations.
