Abstract

Environmental injustice is the unequal distribution of hazards based on factors such as race or income. The Regional Environmental Council, a local non- profit organization, is currently applying for level 2 of the EPA's CARE Grant. Our team mapped hazards and collected demographic information for communities of interest. Our findings support the existence of environmental injustice in Worcester, Massachusetts.
