To commemorate Juneteenth, the Emerald Necklace Conservancy will host a webinar discussing the intersection of race, public health, the pandemic and green spaces. The goal is to begin a conversation on how our parks can better serve Black and Brown communities, particularly during public health crises like COVID-19.
Joining our webinar are distinguished guests:
