NOTICE OF MEMBERSHIP PRICING CHANGE~ Effective November 1, 2022
Effective November 1, 2022, the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of SWEP, along with NJ SWEP, will be increasing membership dues. Membership dues have not been increased for a number of years and our boards have recognized the need to offset increasing costs to run our organizations and continue to provide quality programs and events for our members.
Both boards have agreed to the individual Chapter and joint Chapter pricing changes, which will be effective for 2023 membership enrollment.
Should you have any questions on membership pricing or levels, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!
This celebration runs yearly from September 15 through October 15 and was set up to recognize the history, culture and achievements of Hispanic Americans. Since 2000, Philadelphia’s Hispanic population has increased 27%, a large increase in comparison to the 5% overall population growth. Hispanic and Latino communities are among those suffering the most from the consequences of climate change around the world. However, local actions are improving conditions. In 2022, Philadelphia launched an Environmental Justice Advisory Committee to address injustices to Philadelphia residents and recently, the Clean Air Council has called for air quality information in order to protect Hispanic and Latino communities across Pennsylvania. Small changes, but those are the ones which make the biggest difference.
