Our data - The Margin
The Role of Data in Environmental Justice
National efforts to address environmental justice typically use data that has not been collected or analyzed with a local or nuanced perspective, leaving folks lost in the data. Communities are left to fill in the gaps through local efforts to test and survey their environments, but those efforts are rarely taken seriously by policymakers.
The Margin sources reliable data to surface environmental injustices, to ground conversations in a common set of facts, and provide the basis for action.
