On October 6th, 2021, True Costs Initiative virtually convened our inaugural TCI Fellowship Conference: Pollution Externalities & Community Realities. Our goals for this global event were to i) build community; ii) spotlight the incredible advocacy of our global class of Fellows; and iii) spend time with each other in celebration, conversation, music and poetry. The conference consisted of two sessions. The ﬁrst part, the plenary, was attended by 77 people – grantee partners, funders, and TCI allies and friends – from 23 countries and representing at least 37 organizations from around the world. The second part, the Fellows-Only session, was designated for Fellows to share their experiences and connect with their peers directly and openly.
