Black Flowers: A Conversation on Equity and the Environment

  • July 14, 2020
  • 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Virtual Event

Organization: City of Cincinnati


The conversation of Black lives mattering isn't just limited to police violence. It also extends to climate and environmental justice. This event starts that conversation for Cincinnati and does it with some of our local Black Flowers - Black and Brown professionals and practitioners working in this space. In addition to learning about the work they do and how they do it in Cincinnati, we have special guests who will share perspectives from urban municipalities across the country and tools that can be used to help assess equity in current or proposed green initiatives. If you are fighting against the injustices happening to and in Black and Brown communities, this event is for you.
