Environmental and socioeconomic injustice is the unequal distribution of environmental hazards and social concerns based on race and income respectively. The Regional Environmental Council, a local non-profit organization in Worcester, has actively addressed these issues and is applying for a Level II CARE Grant from the Environmental Protection Agency. Our team identified social concerns including criminal activity, environmental hazards, and building abandonment, and mapped incidents of each in low- income and high-income neighborhoods. We also prioritized social issues relevant to senior citizens in the Worcester community, including homelessness, drug abuse, and other criminal activity.
