Fifty Years After the EPA’s Formation, EDGI Releases A People’s EPA

Today the Environmental Data & Governance Initiative (EDGI) launches a collaborative digital project, A People’s EPA (APE). Since December 1970, Congress has charged the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with implementing laws that protect us from air pollution, dirty water, and hazardous waste. Launching 50 years after the EPA’s establishment, the new project website helps illuminate the complex history, present day struggles, and future direction of the country’s lead environmental agency.
