The Environmental Justice Mapping Project's goal is to create a hub for environmental justice data across the country. With guidance from environmental justice organizations, we aim to aggregate this data into a single indicator of vulnerability for every state, similar to CalEnviroScreen(link is external) and the Washington Environmental Health Disparities Map(link is external) This will fill an existing gap in data accessibility and provide a valuable tool for advocates and policymakers. The final product will be an online map and datasets combining census, environmental pollutants, and health data for every state. Students with experience or interest in spatial data analysis, database management, Python, and web development are encouraged to apply.
