All Vermonters deserve access to clean air and water, and communities that have historically borne the burdens of environmental pollution must be centered in solutions.

Green Justice Zones are an initiative that uses data mapping, community design and a participatory budgeting process to support community revitalization in places that have been most harmed by the current climate crisis.

We are currently working toward the establishment of Green Justice Zones in Vermont communities that have historically shouldered the burdens of environmental pollution.
