A Perfect Storm for Change: A Case Study of Climate Equity in Raleigh

 Climate justice is not just a political issue, but also a racial issue. Flooding is one of the top climate-related concerns in many communities across North Carolina. Hear about this innovative partnership addressing flooding that disproportionately impacts people of color in the Raleigh area.  Water flows according to geography and is not constrained by political boundaries. In this innovative partnership, we have brought together nonprofits, local governments, and a local university to address not only flooding, but also workforce development, education, and nature-based solutions.
