According to the group, "Extreme heat waves and flooding are predicted and they will have the greatest impact on older, sick, and poor residents." Nonprofits are perfectly positioned to play an important role where climate change and readiness intersect with vulnerable DC residents.
APACC is inviting all nonprofits in Wards 7 and 8 and those across the city serving east of the river residents to this discussion featuring representatives from the Department of Energy and Environment. Attendees will learn about the District government's Climate Ready DC Plan and will have the opportunity to meet staff from other organizations and share ideas about addressing these important challenges.
Learn more about the meeting (February 3: What climate change means to people, a meeting for nonprofits) and RSVP.
