Organization Profile

Village Creek Human and Environmental Justice Society, Inc.

Village Creek Human and Environmental Justice Society, Inc. (VCS) started as Coalition #1 in the 1980’s followed by Coalition #2 in 1996 to address extensive flooding in our minority populated communities in the Village Creek Watershed. The Army Corps of Engineers many studies did not make attempts to “stop” the flooding nor to “upgrade” the quality of the industrial polluted waters that once, in early Birmingham, severed as its drinking water and then became the water that brought the “magic” and “money economy” to Jefferson County. But human justice was overlooked and VCS has worked and is still working to improve the quality of life in the 3 sections of the 44 mile watershed:
