Mapping Justice

Students in my Mapping Justice course at JMU are studying local and regional food systems through a lens of social and environmental justice. Their recent community mapping project examined local food assets and their relationships to environmental racism, public transit, socio-spatial patterns of crime, childhood literacy and nutrition, urban foraging, and community gardens. Their work seeks to analyze and enact food justice and food sovereignty in Harrisonburg and beyond.
