What is NEJRC?

The Northeastern Environmental Justice Research Collaborative (NEJRC) is made up of scholars dedicated to building a more transformative environmentalism in the United States and around the world. Based at Northeastern University, NEJRC Associates collaborate with policy makers, elected officials, environmental advocates, foundation officials, scholars, students, community activists, the media, and the general public to provide timely research and commentary on critical social and environmental justice issues, and to promote an alternative political ecology for the new millennium. Our reports and publications have contributed to the adoption of new government regulations and policies, as well as innovative programs and projects from foundations, non-profit organizations, and progressive movements for social change.
