We are partnering with Seattle-based organizations Got Green and Front & Centered on a new grant from the Kresge Foundation that will work towards Climate Resilence Planning for South Seattle and South King County Communities.
This work builds off of previous collaborations that led to the the Washington Environmental Health Disparities Map.
The new grant aims to increase understanding of climate change impacts for communities of color, improve the readiness of communities of color to serve in an equitable way in city and county climate policies, and increase the capacity of communities of color to document and track vulnerabilities to cimate change.
My group at the UW looks forward to working with our parterns at Got Green and Front & Centered on this important work.
For more information, please contact the project lead, Got Green.
