About the Founders and Participants

Founders and Participants

The Environmental Expo was conceived as a follow-up to a 2018 project between Neighbor to Neighbor Springfield and the Humanities Action Lab. The project, Climates of Inequality, highlighted environmental injustices in communities like Springfield.

This year, members of the Humanities Action Lab, Neighbor to Neighbor, and graduate students with the History program at UMass Amherst came together to create a new project. This project was moved online to increase accessibility during the pandemic.
