Community Engagement and Capacity Building

JAPRI (Jail and Prison Rehabilitation Information) participated in community engagement and capacity building effort in Northampton County, NC with Dogwood Alliance in August 2019. This effort culminated in citizen participation in a public hearing addressing the expansion of operations permit of a wood pellet processing facility called Enviva sited within the heart of a minority community. The picture illustrates who were present (including JAPRI representative) opposing the expansion of operations of this Enviva Plant.
