• Access Denied: Federal Web Governance Under the Trump Administration examines the Trump administration’s management of federal websites related to environmental regulation and makes recommendations for the Biden administration moving forward. Currently, there are few policies governing website content.
Monitoring Federal Websites
We monitor changes to tens of thousands of federal environmental and climate change web pages to trace how data, information, and their presentation change.
Interviewing Federal Experts
We interview federal employees to provide a human, qualitative perspective on how the current administration is affecting environmental health agencies.
Cultivating Environmental Data Justice

We connect research and advocacy on Environmental and Data Justice to theorize, imagine and enact more just human-environmental relationships.

Alternative Organizational Structure
We actively build and maintain EDGI as a values-focused non-hierarchical organization.
