Too often we focus on ameliorating the back-end problems of sustainability, without addressing front-end strategies for prevention. Thanks!

I don’t think I have heard anyone sum it up better than when you shared that, “If the race to sustainability is a race to the top, some of our communities can take the elevator and others only have the stairs”. As I began to look deeper into environmental justice and equitable development, I began to understand that many communities are struggling to just get to the starting line of the race, while others have the resources and access to be much further along. I hope that development in the future will consider the green priorities and tools you highlighted.

I think many people make the assumption that sustainability will naturally be a positive in all communities and fail to realize that there are factors that could actually cause additional harms, to those who have faced persistent inequities. Thank you for sharing this very powerful blog with all of us.
