“Love this conversation. We need to have more.” -Selena Earley, participant
On September 23, 2020, Penn Futures hosted our first “System Meets the Neighborhood” Roundtable. This virtual discourse provided live collaboration between community leaders, activists, and Penn educators, staff, and students. The group engaged in a lively and thoughtful discussion addressing the structural and systemic issues that contribute to inequities faced by children and families in our shared communities. Harnessing the energy and insights of this first roundtable, the Penn Futures Project is partnering with our neighbors to continue developing solutions to community-identified issues that promote equity and opportunity.
