Trying to figure out how to incorporate Environmental Justice and other JEDI practices into the everyday workings of your organization? The Haw River Assembly is dedicated to the goal of environmental justice and equality for everyone living in the watershed. Our efforts are guided by our mission statement, our strategic plan and the work of our Environmental Justice, Diversity and Inclusion Committee. Let us share with you how we have worked with communities to fight disproportionate burdens of pollution based on demographic factors such as race and income in the past - as well as the creation of our Environmental Justice Mapping tool to help raise citizen awareness of issues that still exist today.
