STEAM Salon with Jan-Michael Archer: Mapping Environmental Injustice in Maryland
Powered by Research Commons at University Libraries. STEAM Salon is an informal series held in the STEM Library featuring faculty and student speakers in science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics who engage and inspire our university community with their current research.
The Maryland Environmental Justice Screening Tool (MD EJSCREEN) was developed to answer one question: Where are Maryland's most impacted and vulnerable environmental justice communities? Since it's creation in 2017, the tool has become a robust resource for identifying spatial justice as well as environmental hazard overburdening. This presentation will discuss how the tool was built, why it's needed, and how it has been used by community members, legal advocates, policymakers, and government agency officials.
