Are you interested in learning about environmental justice (EJ), but aren’t sure where to start? Are you familiar with the concept of EJ and want to know more about the positive changes happening in Delaware? Do you want to make sure that everyone has access to clean air, water, land and food? Are you interested in taking action with other like-minded people, helping to reduce the impacts of pollution and environmental racism in your community?
