Green Mapping for Eco-Justice in Harlem

We mentioned in March that Carnegie Council had been involved with helping put together a video about the Green Mapping in Harlem. Columbia University's Earth Institute and Dorst MediaWorks have just released this wonderful documentary about Harlem's community response to ensure a new bus depot was outfitted with proper air filtration systems. It is a story about environmental justice taking place through community organization facilitated by technology--the maps. One of the theories behind this movement has been the need for religious communities to spread the moral logic for environmental protection. Check out the video here:
