  • Our data

    The Margin sources reliable data to surface environmental injustices, to ground conversations in a common set of facts, and provide the basis for action.

  • Who we are

    The Margin is a non-profit publication and an independent project at Counterstream Media that centers the people and places most affected by environmental injustice in the United States. Our stories expose the ongoing cycle of unjust actions that intentionally push the poor and people of color to the edge of society while driving our planet to the brink of collapse.
