Why: The Uniontown Air Quality Monitoring Network Project is a project between Black Belt Citizens Fighting for Health and Justice and the Community Engagement, Environmental Justice, and Health (CEEJH) Lab at the University of Maryland School of Public Health. Together, Black Belt Citizens and CEEJH are working to determine how polluted Uniontown’s air is–and how this may affect your health.
To do this, CEEJH has asked residents throughout Uniontown to host a PurpleAir air quality monitor. These sites may be located near sites of highest air pollution concern. The monitors make up a network of data collection–if any of these sites are emitting high concentrations of pollutants into the air, the monitors will detect it. This will be the 3rd visit from University of Maryland. They visited in March, May, and July. This project will continue throughout the year. If you are interested in participating, please contact us anytime.
Black Belt Citizens works towards a Uniontown and Black Belt region where all people will unite to act in love for shared liberty and justice for all; Black Belt Citizens are Freedom Fighters, based in Uniontown Alabama, that demonstrate faith in action by embracing and encouraging solutions against all injustices.
