An interactive map that highlights social and environmental injustices in Texas, created by Climate Cabinet Education in partnership with Texas Rising.
This mapping tool summarizes pollution, health, and socioeconomic data into a cumulative environmental justice risk score. The score communicates the environmental and social vulnerability of a county or census tract.
This map illustrates a clear and well-documented story: there’s an unequal pattern of environmental burden in Texas, and it's primarily carried by low-income communities and communities of color.
Explore the map to investigate where these environmental injustices are concentrated. After you're done, use the 'Share Your Story' feature to read stories of local residents who live in these communities.
