Delaware Humanities Launching Environmental Justice Toolkit

July 17, 2023

Delaware Humanities will be releasing its Environmental Justice toolkit this month on July 20th. Their organization runs on four core concepts: Culture and Community, Health and Environment, Stories and Histories, and Media and Democracy. This toolkit is a part of the Health and Environment concept which focuses on exploring the significance and impact of human behavior on our collective sense of wellbeing and our physical, cultural, and social surroundings.  

This toolkit will help Delaware communities understand their surroundings by guiding and facilitating conversation about the importance of environmental justice efforts in Delaware. They created this toolkit in the hopes that all who utilize the information understand how the issues of environmental justice are impacting our communities and to learn how we can combat these issues. Encouraging conversations on this important topic can bring forth ideas on how we can continue to fix this problem and show all Delawareans how they can get involved.  

“We hope our toolkits will help Delaware organizations bring important topics to their communities, jumpstarting conversations about contemporary issues,” said Delaware Humanities Senior Program Officer Rebecca Olsen. “Our most popular programs are ones that organizations host themselves, bringing in local audiences. With this toolkit initiative, we wanted to create more opportunities to support localized programming.” 

You can join Delaware Humanities for the unveiling of the toolkit at 3pm on July 20th at the Dupont Environmental Education Center. During the event you will be able to receive a copy of your own toolkit and they will be available to answer any questions. After the event all requests for the toolkit will be accepted through their website. Delaware Humanities hope to see you all there and share in this exciting step towards environmental justice for all our communities!
