Environmental Justice Map

This map was created by the UPROSE Youth Justice Organizers. It was created to inform the community of the environmental burdens in the Sunset Park Neighborhood. We need access to the waterfront in Sunset Park.  Currently, getting down to the water is almost impossible and very unsafe. We are a community of color fighting for "Fair Share", the equitable distribution of environmental benefits and burdens.  "Fair Share" means equality for all communities regardless of privilege, prestige, and race.

Light Blue Flags = Other Waterfront Land Use
Maroon Flags = Auto Shops
Yellow Flags = Industrial and Manufacturing Sites
Green Flags = Power Plants
Dark Blue Flags = Brownfield Opportunity Area Sites
Red Line = EJ Tour Route
