Goals

Goals

This committee caters to urban and/or low-income communities in hopes of helping them achieve successful tree planting events in areas with marginal tree coverage. 

 

Moreover, we aim to increase geographic and ethnic diversity within the Tree-Plenish team to ensure representation across the board. 

Issues we tackle

  • Low income, urban, and BIPOC communities have significantly lower quantities of green spaces within their neighborhoods compared to more affluent neighborhoods

  • Low income/BIPOC students may not have the same access to resources, school support, and/or leadership opportunities as their white counterparts
