POWER (Philadelphians Organized to Witness, Empower and Rebuild) is hosting a community event on the topic of climate and race. Three of our Presbytery of Philadelphia Churches are members of POWER and extend an invitation to all to attend “Why You Can’t Talk about Climate Without Talking About Race,” on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Arch Street United Methodist Church, 66 N. Broad St., Philadelphia PA 19107.
A generation ago, Black, Brown, and low-income communities alerted the world to environmental racism: more toxins, fewer jobs, more pollution, and less voice in Black and Brown communities. Today, we’re seeing these same disasters multiplied by climate crisis. , join POWER’s Climate Justice and Jobs Team in looking at Climate Crisis through an anti-racist lens. Join this evening of shared learning, imagining, and community building as we envision the possibility of an economy that puts people and the planet first!
