Centering Anti-Racism Actions in the Green Seattle Partnership
Thursday, August 12, 4 – 5:30 PM
Description: How has Green Seattle Partnership been shaped by racism? What can we do to address historical harms, build equitable programming, and support long-term forest and community health in Seattle? Join us for an online workshop to better understand the context and actions specific to the Green Seattle Partnership. Belinda Chin, Seattle Parks and Recreation Program Coordinator and Race and Social Justice Change Team Co-lead, will provide important context about racism in our park system, the broader environmental movement, and GSP programming. Participants will explore implicit bias to better understand how it may show up in their role as a Forest Steward or Green Seattle Partnership partner. Plant Ecologist’s will give an update on the program’s Race and Social Justice Initiative actions for 2021 and will provide resources for additional learning. This workshop will build off concepts discussed in the December 2020 workshop, Environmental Justice and Wildlife in our Urban Ecosystems. Participants are encouraged to review the workshop in advance.
