Black History Month: The Struggle for Environmental Justice

Wednesday, February 22 • 11:45am

Join us at People’s Place: Wellness & Empowerment Center (775 Broadway) for a screening of the short 2021 documentary On the Fenceline: A Fight for Clean Air and a discussion about the pursuit of environmental justice.

After years of living on the fenceline of the east coast’s largest oil refinery and suffering from several critical health issues, residents of Philadelphia’s low-income communities come together to stand up for their right to breathe.

Pick up a FREE special meal at the People’s Place Cafe, then head over to the Wellness & Empowerment Center next door for the event to begin at NOON.
