Digital Archive and Mapping Project
This website is a collaboration among students, faculty, local residents, citizen researchers, and community activists. Together they have co-produced and collected source materials on the history of environmental inequality and the fight for environmental justice in frontline communities in the Newark, New Jersey region, across the United States, and internationally.
The website currently archives hundreds of historical source materials, including primary texts, images, and maps; lists of secondary sources; scientific, demographic, and health data; and original oral interviews. Additionally, the site also contains more than 100 original “Final Reports” written by these collaborators on specific environmental justice sites.
Visitors to this publicly accessible website can use the “Search” window below to cross-reference these historical materials by location, category of environmental injustice, keyword, and historical date.
We encourage visitors to the site to use these resources for research on environmental inequalities affecting their own local communities.
