This assignment is designed to provide you with in-depth knowledge of a particular area or set of issues, while collaborating on a public information project aimed at providing guidance to those who might benefit from information and resources needed to address environmental injustices in their own regions, or audiences that might be interested in lending their support to address those struggling with environmental justice and human rights issues.
write an essay that provides audiences with an overview of scholarly analyses and relevant information for those seeking insight and guidance on this topic. I have organized topics thematically under several broad headings. You will select a topic from one of the following sections below: 1) Mapping Environmental Hazards; 2) Relevant Laws, Institutions, Declarations and Policies; 3) Important NGOs, TSMOs, and Community-Based Organizations; 4) Important Concepts and Ideas in Environmental Justice; 5) Databases and Mapping Tools
Must use two sources from the file, and at least three additional sources that you locate through your own research. Your additional sources could include scholarly works that address your theme or they could include primary sources (such as interviews with affected community members or actors, documents produced by a relevant organization, data drawn from reports, promotional materials outlining the work of an organization). All facts and ideas drawn from sources should be cited and sources should be listed in a bibliography.
Specific Environmental Hazards
What do we know about the health effects of specific hazards? Who is likely to be exposed to such hazards and why? How are these specific hazards regulated? Where can people find more information about their own exposures to such hazards? Students should focus on a single hazard from the following list:
Pesticides (or a specific pesticide)
Medical waste
Diesel fueled trucks
Military bases
Jet fuel
Gas and oil pipelines
Global warming
Coal-fired power plants
NGOs, TSMOs, Community-based Organizations
What organizations provide assistance to communities that are struggling with disproportionate exposure to environmental hazards? What are the goals of these organizations and what kinds of assistance to they provide? Evaluate their effectiveness and influence with reference to a case, problem, or example.
