Demographic analysis that matters. All too frequently, numbers and statistics don’t tell the full story. Using our broad networks and contacts in communities across California, E / J Solutions quickly identifies, meets with, and establishes relationships with local community groups. We ascertain priority community concerns and gather fine-grained information on the socioeconomic and public health impacts of a proposed project or policy.
Meet the triple bottom line. Programs and policies designed to meet the needs of disadvantaged communities can confer significant benefits for the environment, economy and social equity. Maximizing benefits in this manner creates a rising tide that lifts all boats, but the benefits must surge from the ground up, not trickle down. E / J Solutions will help hone initiatives for equitable outcomes and will identify important indicators and metrics for guidance and accountability during project implementation.
Optimize community engagement. When community engagement does not occur early and often, community members may not feel that their input matters. E / J Solutions will engage residents and community groups and provide skilled neutral facilitation of large stakeholder meetings. As each outreach process is unique, we will identify the appropriate tools and methods to enable robust democratic public participation.
Effective environmental justice advocacy. In addition to data research and writing, E / J Solutions will help you understand the policy landscape and build your advocacy network.
