Promoting Data Resilience
We examine models for distributed stewardship of data by working with community members and partner organizations.
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.
