On Wednesday, April 22nd, in celebration of Earth Day, WURD Radio’s ecoWURD initiative, in partnership with the From The Source Collaborative, will host a day long summit of on air and online conversations exploring environmental justice at the intersection of race, health, the arts, education and politics. The series of conversations will run throughout the broadcast day – from 6am to 9pm — shining a light on the disparities facing Black Philadelphians during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. Through elemental themes of earth, air, water, and fire, the conversations will be framed to make environmental issues urgent, culturally relevant, and accessible while focusing on solutions.
