  • Musical Performances: Philadelphia’s talented musicians will grace the The Belmont Mansion infusing joy into our shared commitment to environmental preservation.
  • Vendor Showcase: A diverse array of vendors will offer sustainable products, championing both environmental responsibility and social equity.
  • Education and Advocacy: Attend empowering workshops about inequities, green communities and more to discover accessible opportunities to engage with environmental justice in ways large and small.
