Local collaborative releases Environmental Justice Report

report cverOver the past few years, Our Kitchen Table has joined with other Grand Rapids area agencies and nonprofits to form the Grand Rapids Environmental Justice Collaborative with the goal of developing a comprehensive report on local EJ issues. Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice‘s Guy Williams provided great direction. You can read the full report here.

The Environmental Justice Collaborative’s report will give the city of Grand Rapids’ officials and leaders a baseline. It will paint a picture of where the city is today as far as environmental inequities impacting its most vulnerable residents, most often people of color. And, it will present a vision for a future — hopefully a near future — that creates a healthier, safer, life-affirming environment for everyone living in  the greater Grand Rapids area.
