Join Taylor Morton of WE ACT for a workshop discussing the importance of access to green space and why it is an environmental justice and climate justice issue. Green spaces provide benefits to the environment, mental and physical health, and community health. Participants will reflect on their own interactions with parks and green spaces in their neighborhoods to understand these benefits, and why access to these spaces is a justice issue.
This workshop requires advanced registration. Sign up here.
