About This Project
Using community science to evaluate the intersection of social, racial, and economic injustices in North Birmingham, AL
Environmental injustices differentially impact low wealth communities of color, and this pattern of inequity is evident in the 35th Avenue Superfund Site in North Birmingham, AL where residents are overburdened by cumulative hazards such as toxic air and soil. This project will use the OurVoice Discovery Tool mobile app to empower residents and advance health equity through citizen science. This is a pilot project to inform future research and community outreach.
