It’s getting hot and wet in our cities and we know two things: not all neighborhoods will be impacted equally by the climate crisis and that’s no accident. Groundwork USA’s Climate Safe Neighborhoods partnership brings together 8 cities to explore historical housing discrimination and the impacts of the climate crisis on low-income communities of color and works with residents to develop and implement grassroots mitigation measures for extreme heat and precipitation. Democratization of community data is core to the success of the program, as it enables deep engagement of the community to make informed decisions about the future of their communities.
