The Renewal of Life Trust is pleased to partner with the Virginia Environmental Justice Collaborative, Mapping for Environmental Justice and GIS Corp to launch the Virginia Environmental Justice Map. The map was created to inform about the cumulative impacts of environmental injustice in Virginia and strengthen networks of advocacy for the prioritization of resources to affected communities. Data is essential to identify pollution, but the human chronicle of environmental injustice affords great opportunity towards remedy. As Lakeisha Wright points out “Community should inform data and not the other way around.” Connect with us to tell your story.
