Please join us for a panel discussion focused on understanding sustainability from the perspective of diverse and often marginalized communities. These communities have long been engaged with promoting equitable practices that support solutions to pressing social and environmental justice issues. Our panel of community leaders and practitioners will discuss their past and current work with communities of color and offer insights into environmental justice and sustainability efforts in Philadelphia.
