An Introduction to the Information Resource Guide


This information resource guide provides an overview of articles and other resources about environmental justice-related issues in the Eastern Coachella Valley (Riverside County). It is intended to help inform community building, education, organizing, and advocacy in the region: putting the power of knowledge in hands of those who are working to improve health and well-being in the region.


The resource guide includes a wide range of media, including academic articles, newspaper articles, maps, reports from non-profit organizations and government agencies, websites, and documentaries. Each resource is “tagged” with one or more of seven issue areas: Environment, Social Vulnerability, Health, Housing, Economic, Land Use, and Civic Engagement. Entries provide a brief summary, key points, and corresponding page numbers when available. Most entries include live links to the source location so that the document or website may be accessed in full.


The resources are searchable by keyword, allowing specification of geographic location and issue area. Our goal is to ensure that the information resource guide remains current and relevant. Users are encouraged to submit new materials or to add comments on existing resources for posting by the resource guide moderator. 

This information resource guide was created by the UC Davis Center for Regional Change, in partnership with the California Institute for Rural Studies and with funding from The California Endowment’s Building Healthy Communities Eastern Coachella Valley initiative.
