Community Healthbook Map

Welcome to Community Health Book! This is Erin Brockovich and I believe we are in an age of self-reporting. This crowd-sourced hub allows individuals and community groups to stand up and report health and environmental issues by geographic area and by health topic. The data is intended to help connect the dots between clusters of illness and environmental hazards in specific communities and regions.

To get started, simply report an environmental or health concern using the form on this page. Each person who reports helps share a larger story of what’s happening in our country and how toxic pollutants are affecting all of us.

My hope is that this information can support us to get new laws passed or push for stricter enforcement of the laws already in place to protect those who are most vulnerable and in need of help.

The issues in your backyard matter and this tool helps raise our collective voice for change.
