Mapping for Environmental Justice

Website: http://mappingforEJ.berkeley.edu

Mapping for Environmental Justice creates community-informed maps to paint a picture of the cumulative pollution burden experienced by vulnerable and marginalized populations. We use a science-based method that combines data into a single indicator of environmental injustice, and we work with partner organizations to support the map’s use in advocacy and decision-making by state agencies.

Maps like ours are used by agencies in California, Washington, Illinois, and other states to identify and address environmental injustice. We are currently working with partners in Colorado, Virginia, and New Mexico to build and apply maps in those states.
