The Neighborhood-Self Defense Project (NSDP) is an effort to use the official citywide Forward Dallas comprehensive plan process to reverse decades of racist zoning in Southern Dallas that has put People of Color dangerously close to polluters. We provide assistance to neighborhood organizations in the creation, adoption and implementation of grassroots land use plans that expresses reflect the community’s vision. This project is funded and launched by Downwinders at Risk, and has produced two neighborhood-led land use plans (Floral Farms & Singleton Corridor) in partnership with other grassroots groups and neighborhood associations since January 2020.
