Conversations about Environmental Justice

January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST

$36 – $54

Drawing on the values of Tu B’Shvat, “Jewish Arbor Day,” you will hear from a panel of speakers working locally for equal access to natural resources and equal protection from pollution. Then join the discussion and call to action over a shared meal and dessert. Dinner features dishes inspired by foods traditionally eaten during a Tu B’Shvat seder. Panelists include Rhonda Hamilton, Dr. Janet Phoenix, and Brenda Lee Richardson, moderated by Dahlia Rockowitz.

Presented in partnership with Casey Trees, Dayenu: A Jewish Call to Climate Action, Jewish Earth Alliance, and Interfaith Power & Light (DC, MD, NoVA).
