Health & Environment: Environmental Justice

Health & Environment

Environmental Justice

This toolkit is designed to help inspire, facilitate, and guide conversations about the importance of environmental justice efforts in Delaware.

The goals of this toolkit are to teach participants:

1) to understand how issues of environmental injustice, environmental racism, and classism have emerged and impacted all parts of Delaware and their own community

2) to learn how people in the past and today combat environmental injustice in diverse ways

3) to identify the local environmental justice efforts in Delaware and how to learn more and get involved if they wish.

As this is a Delaware Humanities project, special attention will be given to the human component in these topics so participants can recognize how the environment plays a central role in their lives. This toolkit will emphasize both the seriousness of these issues and the positive impact hope and collective action can have on them.
