Heat, Health, & Equity


We are looking for volunteers to participate in community planning workshops for our Heat, Health, & Equity project. These workshops will be held in neighborhoods throughout Northern Manhattan to develop policy recommendations to reduce the health impacts of extreme heat in our communities. The workshops are scheduled as follows:

West Harlem – Nov. 20th
Location: WE ACT for Environmental Justice
1854 Amsterdam Avenue, 2nd Floor (at 152nd Street)

Inwood & Washington Heights – Dec. 3rd
Location: Dominican Women’s Development Center
519 West 189th Street (at Audubon Avenue)

Central Harlem – Dec. 5th
Location: National Black Leadership Commission Training Center
215 West 125th Street, 3rd Floor (between 125th & Adam Clayton Powell)

East Harlem – Dec. 7th
Location: TBD

To ensure that we engage with a representative group from each of these Northern Manhattan communities, we are asking those interested in participating to fill out the form below. Selected representatives will be asked to participate in the two-hour workshop held in their neighborhood (see dates/locations above). Then, if they are available, they can participate in our advocacy efforts in support of legislation based on these community recommendation.

While we work to resolve the technical issues with our form below, please simply email the following information to info@weact.org: Name, Address, Gender, Race, Occupation, Email Address, & Phone Number. Thanks, and our apologies for the inconvenience!
