Maryland Matters speaks to Region 3 Mid-Atlantic TCTAC about tree equity

Maryland Matters spoke to representatives from the Region 3 Mid-Atlantic TCTAC about growing urban forests for environmental justice. Sacoby Wilson of the University of Maryland’s Center for Community Engagement, Environmental Justice, and Health (CEEJH) and Adrienne Hollis of the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) are co-leaders of the Environmental Justice Fund, which is expected to plant and maintain trees, as well as build capacity for tree work in Maryland's urban areas. “We know that the participatory funding model will be the most effective method to distribute these funds, said Wilson, CEEJH director. Hollis, a NWF vice president adds, “The only way to authentically and durable address the challenges facing historically marginalized communities is if the communities themselves develop and lead the solutions.” Yahoo! News shared the Maryland Matters report.
