    In this thesis, I explore the current community organizing efforts in Southeast Los Angeles, an area facing environmental justice issues. This area has a long history of environmental racism and government neglect; these factors have helped to establish community organizations’ role as the main resources providers. This work provides knowledge on the work these community organizations do, as well as the limitations they experience due to existing infrastructure deficits. I explore the following questions: 1) What is the relationship between a technological infrastructure and access to resources? 2) What assumptions are made by government agencies and community organizations in Los Angeles in their communication and outreach methods? 3) How has the COVID-19 pandemic shaped what community organizations advocate for in Southeast Los Angeles? 4) What are the consequences of already existing resource disparities in Southeast Los Angeles during the COVID-19 pandemic?Through the lens of the COVID-19 pandemic, I also witness the changes in community organizing due to the disproportionate burdens faced by Southeast Los Angeles. By examining the forms of advocacy and approaches used during and before the pandemic, as well as analyzing the structural deficits that both inhibit and influence community organizing, we can further understand what is needed by community organizations in communities of color.

  3. All the Water in the World, and None of it to Drink: Community Perspectives and the Suburban Role in the Detroit Shutoff Crisis, the Lifeline Plan, and a Just Water Future

    Kanji, Evan
    May 23, 2023

    All the Water in the World and None of it to Drink is story of what happens when structural racism, disinvestment, and local and state policy decisions align to cut off the water of 141,000 in the Great Lakes State's largest city over a decade. But more than that, it's a story about how we have created the conditions for widespread failure in disinvested cities, and then act with shock and disdain when their local structures fail. In 2022, Detroit put in place a water assistance plan that, on the surface, was everything activists ever asked for. But one year in, problems and distrust persist. What does it take to move forward after a decade of harm? And what do the suburbs and bigger governments owe the city?
