National PFAS Roadmap – Update for Tribes & Indigenous Peoples
Do you know what Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) compounds are? Do you have concerns about PFAS impacting tribes? Do you want to learn more about EPA’s plan to address PFAS? Do you want to learn more about the sources of PFAS near you and how tribal and indigenous communities may be impacted?

PFAS are a group of manufactured chemicals that have been used in industry and consumer products since the 1940s, and thousands of different PFAS have been developed. One concern is that many PFAS break down very slowly and can build up in people, animals, and the environment over time. This webinar will provide an introduction to PFAS and will include information on the potential impacts of PFAS in Indian country and in indigenous communities, discuss the value of mapping tools, and provide an overview of EPA’s Strategic Roadmap -- a national strategy to confront PFAS pollution.

This webinar is part of the U.S. EPA Environmental Justice Webinar Series for Tribes and Indigenous Peoples -- to build the capacity of tribal governments, indigenous peoples and other environmental justice practitioners, and discuss priority environmental justice issues of interest to tribes and indigenous peoples.
