Urban Tree Connection Annual Report 2021
Posted by Urban Tree Connection on January 4, 2022
Urban Tree Connection (UTC) is a place-based project in Haddington, West Philadelphia that creates space for Black working-class community members across ages to participate and take up leadership in building a community governed food and land system. We ground this work in our organizational values of community self-determination, solidarity, mutuality, transformational, and collective wisdom.
Alongside organizers, activists, and political workers across the U.S. and Global South, we hold a vision of a Just Transition. In a just society, the political economy’s purpose is NOT for the accumulation of wealth and power for a few, but FOR the social and ecological well being of all people, living things, and the planet.
