Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum: The Future is Here
March 27, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
In celebration of Women’s History Month, ACM’s Urban Waterways project will be hosting four virtual community forums as part of its Women’s Environmental Leadership (WEL) initiative.
Known for their forward-thinking ideas, this week’s female panelists will give us a glimpse into the future of environmental justice. Smithsonian’s Anacostia Community Museum started women’s history month with an exploration of women’s leadership roles in the seminal First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit held thirty years ago in Washington, DC and the impacts of such participation on subsequent justice efforts. We end our celebration of a month of women’s environmental leadership with an exploration of the future, the women who are shaping and will continue to shape and lead environmental spaces at local, national, and international levels.
Panel discussions will explore the perspectives they bring into these multiple spaces, the definitions they will challenge and expand, and the shape of the communities they will help to build.
