The VT-EJ Network will bridge overburdened community members with decision-makers at the state and local level, fostering relationships and creating continuity between communities and government, increasing accessibility of information and resources, and supporting context-sensitive communication. Long term, the Network strengthens communities’ ability to equitably distribute environmental burdens and benefits.
The VT-EJ Network will:
- Create opportunities to connect and communicate in an adaptive, emergent network of ties among environmental and social justice organizations;
- Value multiple perspectives, robust group participation, mobilization and engagement over time;
- Provide annual stipends for Network Liaisons; and
- Cultivate leadership in communities.
By creating and strengthening active community to community and community-agency relationships now, communities will be better connected, informed and more resilient.
