This report is the second in a series looking at the impacts of exclusion in Duplin County, North Carolina. The first concentrated on education advocacy and equity in the county. This one examines environmental justice, and like the previous report is based both on empirical research and engagement by community advocates and the lawyers supporting their efforts. While environmental justice encompasses a range of hazardous and unwanted land uses disproportionately located in excluded communities, in Duplin the most significant of those are industrial animal feeding operations. They are therefore the focus of this report.
