The System Meets the Neighborhood: From Structural Inequality to Neighborhood Change


This Community Roundtable is the first of a series intended to open new dialogue and build upon existing efforts toward action that are defined and developed in collaboration with communities.

The initial session will create a repository of community-generated strategies that will frame future sessions in the series. It will be hosted and moderated by We the People Stage (https://www.wethepeoplestage.com), a community platform that engages diverse communities by connecting community members, influencers, and key stakeholders through dynamic virtual and traditional events.

Penn faculty, including Penn Futures representation from School of Nursing, Graduate School of Education and School of Social Policy and Practice, and community leaders have been invited to engage in the Roundtable conversation. We also will be inviting representatives from Philadelphia’s neighborhoods, City offices, and Penn who will interact with Roundtable participants in a Question-Answer format.

Co-sponsored by Penn GSE, Penn Nursing, Penn Social Policy and Practice, Campaign for Community, and Stavros Niarchos Foundation Paideia Program
