Parks and Greenspace Coalitions: Building More Equitable Communities

Cohort Peer Conversation

This Peer Conversation will share the story of Cleveland’s Parks and Greenspace Coalition (PGC): its origins in the 2021 Cleveland Mayoral Election, how it has evolved over time, and its current focus. 

Discussion leaders will dive into the Coalition’s organizing strategies, including networking, advocacy, and policy efforts. Participants will learn about the PGC’s role in providing resources and access to residents who are activating their parks, ask questions, and share stories about similar efforts in their communities.

Note: This Peer Conversation is a closed session for those working in the parks and green space advocacy field and is not available to general conference participants. If you work in this field, please add your name to the waitlist. Conference organizers will regularly review the waitlist and notify those who are moved into the session or are ineligible to attend so they can register for an alternative.
