Lucien E. Blackwell West Philadelphia Regional Library
Register at bit.ly/EJTRL for Virtual Teen Reading Lounge with Blackwell Library on Wednesdays, May 5 to June 23 from 4-6 p.m.
Youth, 12-18 years old, are invited to choose, discuss, and create media about environmental justice together on Zoom. Lil' Filmmakers will support the filmmaking. We'll be joined by guest speakers like the authors of The Philaldelphia Inquirer's Toxic City. Plus, youth will receive free books and other rewards for participation.
Everywhere you go and what your body is exposed to there is your environment - indoors, outside, air, water.
Environmental Justice is about the equitable treatment and meaningful involvement of all people, especially those most affected by an environment.
TEEN READING LOUNGE IS MADE POSSIBLE BY A GRANT FROM THE INSTITUTE OF MUSEUM AND LIBRARY SERVICES AS ADMINISTERED BY THE PENNSYLVANIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION THROUGH THE OFFICE OF COMMONWEALTH LIBRARIES, AND THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, TOM WOLF, GOVERNOR. ADDITIONAL SUPPORT IS PROVIDED BY THE NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE HUMANITIES.
