Spotlight on Efforts and Resources in Philly for Environmental Justice Month
February is Environmental Justice Month, and to commemorate, we’re highlighting new and ongoing environmental justice initiatives in Philadelphia and resources available to residents for addressing environmental issues in their homes and communities.
Environmental justice is a grassroots movement that first started gaining momentum in the 1980s led by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities advocating for economic and racial justice, community self-determination, and environmental stewardship in decision-making.
