Saturday, March 10, 2018 | 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
The Ancona School 4770 S. Dorchester, Chicago 60615
Ancona School cordially invites all to participate in the annual diversity symposium, this year exploring race and green space in Chicago. How have historical biases shaped Chicago's green spaces and, by extension, its communities? What are loyal organizations doing to make recreation and nature more accessible? Howe is green space being used to foster social change? A special kids track will allow children to engage with the theme via activities led by Ancona teachers and parents.
Presentations and discussions will be led by local activists reclaiming green space, including representatives of Blacks in Green, I Grow chicago, Chicago Wisdom Project, Slow Roll Chicago, Openlands, Faith in Place, and more.
