Nashville Environmental Justice Initiative

The Nashville Environmental Justice Initiative (NEJI) works with community institutions and educates on the tenants of equitable decision-making that protect and empower Nashville’s most marginalized communities. A partnership between Urban Green Lab, Tennessee State University, and others, the NEJI is designed to grow a culture of systemic learning around environmental justice in the city by exploring how people learn about the issue and offering personalized workshops for your school, business, or nonprofit so Nashville grows responsibly for its people, profit, and the planet.
