The old, young, health challenged, and poor are most susceptible to changes in the climate (more hotter than hot days and flooding). The Department of Energy and Environment predicts extreme heat waves and flooding will become progressively more common as the years go on. Nonprofits can help their clients, constituents, and neighbors deal with changes in the climate.
Please join the Anacostia Park and Community Collaborative (APACC) Friday, February 3, 10:00-11:30 am for the first of a series of meetings about what climate change means to people. This interactive meeting is perfect for case managers, family support workers, outreach and engagement staff, and others!
Participants will learn about and discuss the Climate Ready DC Plan (http://doee.dc.gov/climateready) and talk with other nonprofits about the challenges you face and any ideas you have to address these challenges.
Every nonprofit has a role to play (even if you don’t work on environmental issues!).
WHEN: Friday, February 3, 2017, 10:00 – 11:30 am
WHERE: Benning/Dorothy I. Height Neighborhood Library, 3935 Benning Rd NE (Minnesota Ave Metro Rail is closest station; ample free parking)
