Parks and other green spaces are crucial for the health and wellbeing of communities—a fact made even clearer during the pandemic. But not all communities have access to these vital resources. In this free webinar, the authors of Prevention Institute’s new report,
Changing the Landscape: People, Parks, and Power, will share how a new approach to achieving park and green space equity can usher in an era in which African American, Latino, and low-income urban communities are fair, just, and green. Participants will also hear an update on the planning of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s new national funding initiative on park and green space equity.
