Planet Philadelphia is saddened by the generations of institutional and systematic racism that have been part of our national history, affecting the environment and the health particularly of minorities and the poor. Today once again, these problems are tearing our nation and community apart. For our part, we encourage our listeners to send in short descriptions of people/projects in our region which are working to change these racist dynamics as they relate to the environment. We will post them on our website. Send these descriptions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Planet Philadelphia is now a partner in Covering Climate Now, a global collaboration of more than 250 news outlets to strengthen coverage of the climate story.
