Do you know a leader of color doing great things in the city of brotherly love and beyond? Nominate them for Generocity's 2018 Leader List 👏🏽😁

    Nominate a Philly leader of color to be recognized in Generocity's 2018 Leader List - Generocity Philly
    For the past three summers, Generocity has spent one dedicated month reporting on people of color doing important work in Philadelphia's social impact sector. We do this year-round, of course, but the goal behind "leaders of color month" of each year's editorial calendar is to highlight diversity in the communities we cover - nonprofits, philanthropy, social enterprises, local government and the like - even more than we usually do.

    Swati Singh Sambyal is a specialist in municipal waste management and environmental governance at the Center for Science and Environment in New Delhi. NEW DELHI - India produces 62 million tons of waste per year - the same amount as all of sub-Saharan Africa. That's nearly 170,000 tons of waste per day.

It could potentially be used to cure disease, enhance the human body, or even change DNA for future generations--which raises a lot of big questions.” http://bit.ly/2uwzzHD

    Should We Edit Our Evolution?
