Overview
This panel-style conference is the first Pennsylvania TreeVitalize Partners Conference, a conference to bring together partners working in community forests. The conference theme is diversity, inclusion, and justice in community forestry. The panels will focus on agencies, organizations, and practitioners who are creating solutions for people and communities. The conference will help encourage and inspire solutions and strategies that can help you address issues facing your own communities. You will leave these discussions seeing how goals for justice, diversity, and inclusion serve both people and the environment. This conference will also kick-start our series of follow-up weekly webinars that continue to explore issues and opportunities surrounding these topics.

Conference Format
Each panel discussion will be 90 minutes and will contain presentations from panelist concluded with 30 minutes for moderated question and answer with participation from participants. We plan to charge $10 but will offer an option to waive the fee for participants that request it.
