Because the climate crisis disproportionately impacts communities of color, our Climate Justice Working Group partnered with East Harlem COAD and Harlem Emergency Network to develop a comprehensive community-driven emergency preparedness plan for Northern Manhattan that focuses on climate-related disasters. Our award-winning Climate Ready Uptown Plan (CRUP) is a physical pamphlet that helps Northern Manhattan community members understand their individual risk to climate related disasters – specifically extreme heat and coastal & stormwater flooding – and provides pertinent information to help prepare themselves and their families.
Throughout the summer of 2023, we are partnering with community organizations across Northern Manhattan to host emergency preparedness workshops. In this two-hour, in-person workshop, WE ACT and its partners will distribute the CRUP pamphlet (in English and in Spanish) to attendees and engage participants in the basics of how to use and personalize their version of CRUP.
Join our second workshop on Saturday, July 8th at 11:00 AM at the Hamilton Grange Library, 503 West 145th Street (between Amsterdam & Broadway). RSVP Here!
Food and drinks will be provided. This workshop will be offered in both English and Spanish.
