Extreme Heat Virtual Briefing: Read Our 2023 Extreme Heat Agenda


Extreme heat is the deadliest impact of climate change, and it disproportionately harms people of color. Here in New York City, according to the city’s own data, 50 percent of the heat-related deaths are among Black/African American people, even though they make up only around 25 percent of the city’s population. And the communities in Northern Manhattan – particularly East Harlem – are among the most vulnerable.

Join us on Thursday, July 6 at 12:00 PM via Zoom for our Extreme Heat Virtual Briefing. You can learn about heat vulnerability, how to stay safe in scorching temperatures at home, and how neighborhoods can be better protected from high temperatures through policy and community preparedness. We want to open a conversation about how extreme heat impacts you, how you deal with it, and share resources to help make your community more resilient. In additional to special guest speakers, we will be releasing WE ACT’s 2023 Extreme Heat Agenda.
