Tackling COVID-19, climate change, racial equity, and the economy are among the Biden-Harris Administration’s top priorities.
With such a drastic change at the federal level, there are many new, exciting opportunities to address these interconnected crises at the local level here in Philadelphia.

We invite you to join Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations (PACDC) and Green Building United (GBU) for our joint online presentation and discussion on the federal government’s new priorities and how they might impact the City of Philadelphia!

To start, Khalil Shahyd from the Natural Resources Defense Council will present an overview of the Biden-Harris priorities with an emphasis on the nexus of housing and climate change. Shahyd’s presentation will be followed by a discussion with Philadelphia Councilmember Katharine Gilmore Richardson and Philadelphia Chief Resilience Officer, Saleem Chapman on how to best connect these federal priorities with on-the-ground needs in Philadelphia. 

This is a FREE event and all are welcome - whether you work in housing, community development, policy, design, construction, or are generally interested in the climate change policies that impact our homes and commercial spaces in Philadelphia!
