AAPA held a webinar Tuesday advising port authorities on how to forge productive relationships with their local communities. With federal initiatives like Justice 40, which requires that 40% of all infrastructure funding benefit disadvantaged communities, it is important that ports understand best practices in opening dialogue and consulting their communities. The webinar featured:
- Harold Rickenbacker, EPA Ports Initiative,
- Terrance Bankston, Friends of the Earth,
- Miguel Rodriguez, Port of Hueneme, and
- Carolina Gallardo Magana, resident of the Hueneme community.
A recording of the webinar can be accessed online. The passcode is %1BRAw+T. A video from Port of Hueneme on equity can be viewed here.
