The ecoWURD Environmental Justice Summit is less than a week away, and we’re excited to introduce this year’s Keynote Speaker, Shawmar Pitts. Shawmar is the Strategy Organizer for Philly Thrive, a nonprofit organization that has been organizing for environmental, racial, and economic justice in Philadelphia since 2015.

Shawmar Pitts is a lifelong resident of Grays Ferry. As Strategy Organizer at Philly Thrive, he played a role in shutting down the PES refinery that led to a series of explosions in Philadelphia. Shawmar continues to advocate for environmental justice, nonviolent direct action, and how protecting our spaces can reduce crime and poverty in our city.

Our fourth annual ecoWURD Summit, entitled “Respect and Protect Our Spaces” will focus on reducing crime, clean neighborhoods, green spaces, and urgent action in the wake of recent escalations in violence.

Please join us at Bartram’s Garden on Oct. 10 from 12-4PM to join in these conversations. To RSVP, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/2022-ecowurd-environmental-justice-summit-tickets-421556014387.

Nearly 20 years ago, Dr. Walter P. Lomax Jr., M.D. had a vision for a Black-owned and operated radio station — WURD. Today, that vision is still going strong and continues to impact our community… And it would not be possible without our #forWURD members.

When you sign up to become a forWURD member, you gain perks like exclusive access to members-only spaces and workshops during WURD events! You also become a thread in the fabric of Dr. Lomax’s vision as we continue to carry the work he set out to do.

In August, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law, but what does this mean for Black Philadelphians? In a recent ecoWURD article, we outlined the implications. Here are some of the things the Act will do:

-Expands Medicare benefits
-Lowers energy bills
-Makes historic climate investment
-Lowers healthcare costs
-Creates manufacturing jobs
-Invests in disadvantaged communities
-Closes tax loopholes used by wealthy corporations
