The mission of the Fuller Park Community Development Corporation is “to develop a forum to discuss the perspectives, research and solutions related to five environmental themes; environmental justice, environmental education, green jobs, green development/industry & urban agriculture. “
The goals of the conference will remain true to the mission of bringing together leaders from minority communities to educate and inform the public. This “grass-roots” conference is shaped to evolve into a regional and national conference especially in cities that suffer from social and environmental issues similar to Chicago with large populations of disadvantaged, minority or immigrant populations.
