In January the Biden-Harris administration announced the creation of the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council. It’s made up of more than two-dozen leaders from communities across the country that suffer disproportionate levels of pollution and related health and economic problems. They’ve been tasked with advising the administration and making policy suggestions on a range of environmental issues that have historically impacted many tribal lands and communities of color. Havasupai councilwoman Carletta Tilousi was recently appointed to the White House council and spoke with KNAU’s Ryan Heinsius.
