Environmental Justice

NVP’s Environmental Justice Committee is our most recently organized committee.  Kira Burnham, a Georgetown University intern for the summer, is developing a map of the toxic sites in five Naugatuck Valley communities in coordination with committee members.  


Environmental Justice Committee members intend to use the map as an educational tool for community conversations in each of the five communities when it is completed.   The conversations will serve as the beginning of more in-depth discussions with residents living near the toxic sites about what actions they might take to assure an environmentally safe community for themselves, their children, and their neighborhoods.
