Climate Justice in Action
Submit Your Story!
Over summer of 2014, EPA has launched the Climate Justice in Action blog series to focus on the unequal burdens climate change places on low income and minority communities. The blog series also features stories about the innovative solutions from across the country being developed to mitigate climate change and adapt our communities to be more resilient towards its effects.
As a part of the series EPA created an Interactive Climate Justice Map. We invite environmental justice and climate change stakeholders from all backgrounds to contribute stories of community actions to combat climate change across the country, which will be added to our map.
EPA will highlight your stories in various ways throughout our summer climate change campaign, so please take time to contribute your story! We can learn from each other by sharing successes and lessons learned from your activities to combat climate change. So tune in throughout the summer on the EJ in Action Blog to follow our stories, tell us about your successes and hard work, and join the conversation on climate justice!
Note: All submission will be reviewed on a weekly basis and added to the map at the end of each week. Before submitting, please read our publishing criteria.
