Did you know that this academic year is the Year of Civic Engagement? To celebrate the Year of Civic Engagement, Penn Sustainability would like to highlight some information and resources about environmental justice and civic sustainability, including programs right on campus like the Netter Center and Civic House.

To borrow a few words from the Sierra Club, “We cannot expect to come together to protect the planet if racism continues to tear us apart." If we want to create communities that are safe, just, and equitable, we must fight for the dignity of all people, especially Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.
