We at Planet Philadelphia are deeply saddened by the murder of George Floyd and the continuing systemic racism and violence in our society. As for the environment, which is the subject of our show, as many have said, equity and justice should be the lens by which we approach our problems. Climate change, pollution, and other environmental degradation affects us all, but they affect the poor, people of color, and women more. They suffer first and the worst from these problems.
We would like Planet Philadelphia to be part of the solution. We encourage our listeners to send in short descriptions of people and environmental projects in our region who are working to change these racist dynamics. We will post them on our website. Please send these descriptions to: email@example.com
