Environmental Justice Profile

The Environmental Justice Profile (EJP) is a scientifically-informed assessment and educational tool that local communities can use to raise awareness about, and assess, their exposure and vulnerability to a host of environmental justice and related harms.


We do this work in partnership with other organizations to explain, explore, and quantify the harms to which these communities are exposed and/or vulnerable, and to raise broad awareness about these harms so that we can work together to co-imagine an equitable path forward to building resilience in the Lowcountry.

Charleston 2030

Charleston 2030 is our umbrella project that spawns the rest of our activities, initiatives, and connections in order to define a holistic and resilient plan to protect and preserve the Lowcountry. Because climate change is such a ubiquitous problem, it requires a multifaceted and systematic approach. The program is organized under 6 sectors:

  1. Buildings

  2. Transportation

  3. Food

  4. Waste

  5. Nature

  6. Energy

Climate Action Plans

Climate Action Plans (CAPs) are policy tools that are used to outline specific goals and actions that a community or government will use in order to reduce GHG emissions, fight climate change, and promote environmental justice. CAPs utilize date collection and community engagement to gauge the most effective carbon mitigation strategies for a community. The City of Charleston and Charleston County are developing CAPs are both developing and implementing CAPs to increase community sustainability and resilience.

King Street Bike Lane

King Street is the third most dangerous street in all of South Carolina for pedestrians and bicyclists, but we have a chance to change that. The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) recently proposed plans for Lower King Street - Calhoun St. to Broad St.) - that would create a buffered bike lane. Buffered bike lanes are shown to calm traffic, increase safety for both pedestrians and bicyclists, and have a myriad of other benefits for communities. This would be a federally funded bike lane, and all the city has to do is to sign off on it. Unfortunately there are a few business owners that are not convinced, and have helped to hold up the plans. Help us convince the city that the bike lane is sorely needed in Downtown Charleston!
