TreesDurham is so fortunate to partner with Howard University's Day of Service to host student volunteers virtually on August 21st. Students will create infographics for TreesDurham based on the Racial History of Durham's Trees. These infographics will be utilized on our Instagram in hopes of making data on environmental equity and trees more accessible.
Howard University's Day of Service focuses on community building through either service-learning initiatives addressing: educational disparities, environmental injustices, community health disparities, housing, and food disparities, violence and police brutality, political empowerment, youth outreach, and elderly outreach.
This service-learning experience allows Howard University students to discover the power of ethical leadership and civic responsibility. This program is held in collaboration with hundreds of virtual sites across the nation.
