A training will be held an hour prior to the call on August 2nd from 9:00 – 10:00am.
This meeting will focus on the Just Services PHL campaign and the city budget. The #JustServicesPHL campaign is focused on equitable provision of basic services, like trash collection, street light repairs, cleaning vacant properties, removing abandoned cars, and traffic calming. We believe these are all key environmental justice priorities. POWER Interfaith would like to call on Council Members Gauthier, Brooks, & Gym to include a fair (restorative) distribution of street tree planting among their list of basic services. Research here in Philly found that people felt safer after greening, violent crime decreased, and decreased stress was measurable in neighbors’ health.
Register here and we look forward to your participation!
