Due to the vast amount of air pollution in Southeast Dearborn, Michigan and nearby communities, Environmental Health Research to Action (EHRA) was formed to build skills and knowledge in environmental health. EHRA is a community-academic partnership that runs an annual intensive summer academy for youth. In recent times, due to COVID-19, EHRA has added a virtual series for youth and by youth. Currently, EHRA is developing additional community-led monitoring and policy and media advocacy efforts, as well as conducting interviews with Steering Committee members to determine next steps and priorities for achieving environmental justice.
