is the first step to climate justice
cumulative impacts identify communities hit hardest by pollution-- those communities should be first in line for climate solutions.
In partnership with the University of Michigan School of Environment and Sustainability, and under the direction of Dr. Paul Mohai, MEJC released two-part research project that identified EJ Hotspot with the goal to implement the first cumulative impact study to be used in permit decisions, pollution planning, and resource distribution for the State of Michigan.
