Its ProPublica quiz time: Environmental justice edition. So whats that mean? Here we go: Landfills, power plants and toxic waste facilities are disproportionately built in poor and minority communities. The disparity led to protests in the 1980s, and fuels a movement that continues to this day. ... Despite some progress, these communities are still more likely to suffer significant health hazards and be exposed to poisoned air and water. Things may get worse as the Trump administration makes significant cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency -- which is charged with protecting these communities. What do you know about environmental justice? Take our quiz and tell us how you did in the comments. Well praise you if you do well (thats all we can really offer). Check in with ProPublica every Friday for a new quiz about our investigations. ... #EnvironmentalJustice #Environment #CivilRights #Journalism #ProPublica #Pollution #EPA

Hey Instagram, I''m Lucas, the new social visuals producer at ProPublica. I''m a video and motion graphics journalist and I''ll be creating animations, graphics and videos to showcase our reporting on Instagram. We haven''t used our account for a while, but we want to change that! We have some ideas (like this quiz we''re about to share), but we also want to hear from you. So, some questions: How would you like to see ProPublica use Instagram? What would you like to see? And what are some of your favorite accounts that we can use for inspiration? You can share your suggestions in the comments below and tag your favorite accounts (they don''t have to be journalism) in the comments. If you want to reach me directly, you can email me at lucas.waldron@propublica.org

""I thought I was pretty savvy with Excel, so I was surprised by how much I didn''t know but learned in the first two days of training. Those lessons would have saved me hours, or maybe days, of work on previous stories. I''m also really excited to learn to code."" - Marquita Brown, reporter at the News and Record

""I''ve already learned so much (I''m exhausted!), the most exciting of which has been coding. I''m really looking forward to data visualization, though, since that''s what brought me to New York."" - Marissa Gaston, junior, journalism major at Middle Tennessee State University #propubdata
