Subject: Solicitation for short articles
The Urban Habitat Program is currently putting together a special issue of
its quarterly journal, Race, Poverty, and Environment, to focus on land and
social justice.  We are currently gathering articles that discuss various
aspects of brownfields redevelopment, especially environmental justice,
community development, and social equity.

We would be interested in short articles (750-1500 words) either already
written or in draft form discussing brownfields, community economic
development, and the following topics:  

        1) case studies and examples of community-led brownfields projects
(including planning and project development phases); 

        2) case studies and examples of brownfields redevelopment that have
strong community participation;

        3) innovative programs and projects integrating public and
environmental health issues into brownfields redevelopment;

        4) job training and employment opportunities for low-income
residents and people of color;

        5) integrating affordable housing, locally- and "minority-owned"
businesses, and efforts to address gentrification in brownfields redevelopment;

        6) brownfields redevelopment projects that incorporate open space,
parks, urban agriculture/gardens, and/or restored landscapes and habitats as
a reuse.  

If anyone knows of any existing article (written and/or published) or would
like to possibly submit an original piece, please contact Torri at Urban
Habitat (tje@igc.apc.org).

Thank you for your help.
