The Land is stepping out! We invite you, members, and friends to gather in person at Photocentric in Collinwood to discuss environmental justice. We will explore what it is and introduce our Ask The Land: Environmental Justice Reporting Initiative.
We will also share how The Land and its collaborative partners are engaging in neighborhoods and reporting on this topic over the summer in Collinwood and other Cleveland neighborhoods. For example, did you know Waterloo Arts is working on a green roof, and Greater Collinwood Development Corporation is continuously working on environmental justice issues throughout the community such as lead abatement, abandoned buildings, vacant lots, etc.?
Please join us, and let's talk! We want your input on our reporting initiative in the context of building community connections in Cleveland neighborhoods and inner-ring suburbs. Amy Callahan from Waterloo Arts, Jamar Doyle from Greater Collinwood Development Corporation, and Lee Chilcote from The Land will be on hand to keep the discussion lively. The Land’s partners on the environmental justice reporting initiative include NewsLab at Kent State University, Ideastream, La Mega Media, Northeast Ohio Solutions Journalism Collaborative, community residents, and other neighborhood stakeholders.
Date/Time: July 28, 1200-1:00 pm (Bring your lunch. The cookies are on us!)
Check-in, networking, and lunch begin at 11:30am (Check out Photocentric)
