Helping create Tree Equity in cities and towns across America.
A map of tree cover in any city in the United States is too often a map of race and income. This is unacceptable.Trees are critical infrastructure that every person in every neighborhood deserves. Trees can help address damaging environmental inequities like air pollution.
To help address this problem, we partnered with American Forests to develop a platform for calculating Tree Equity Scores for city neighborhoods. The Tree Equity Score Analyzer (TESA) for cities and states that want to dive deep into decision-making around Tree Equity Scores, catalyzing investment and estimating benefits of projects down to the parcel scale. The pilot partner for TESA is Rhode Island.
City government employees, community activists, urban foresters and others can use the scores to make the case for planting trees in the neighborhoods that need them most, and allocate the resources needed to do so.
Building a new advocacy and communications platform.
We Partnered with Purple Strategies and Delta Airlines to launch a new website, DeltaTakingAction.com, aimed at U.S. policymakers to demonstrate Delta's impact on employees and communities on a state-by-state basis.
As one of the largest airlines in the country, Delta is committed to giving back to communities where the company lives and serves. We developed a dynamic map that pulled together a breadth of state-based data on Delta's employees, one-stop destinations, seats per day and much more. Through this combination of data visualizations and strong content, the website gives lawmakers a sense of Delta's innovation, attention to customer experience and role in local communities.
