Climate Change, Disasters and the Vulnerable Communities We Serve

Targeted toward NYC faith communities of all traditions, this event will explore the role of faith communities in community resilience, and how to serve and build capacity in places of faith on the frontlines serving disinvested communities most impacted by climate disasters.
