There is a wealth of research on the differential burden of environmental hazards and locally unwanted land uses (LULUs) on communities of color and low-income populations. Studies have shown that heavily trafficked roadways, incinerators, chemical plants, factories, landfills, and other pollution-emitting facilities tend to have disproportionate impacts across race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status. Communities with a high number of LULUs tend to also have more exposure to psychosocial stressors and lower access to health-promoting infrastructure including supermarkets, grocery stores, and ecologic amenities including parks, tree canopy, and healthy rivers and streams. Inequities in planning, zoning, and community development can drive or exacerbate environmental injustice and related health issues. Go out https://www.facebook.com/events/534641556956518/.
