Roundtable Ethnic Media Discussion: Climate Impacts and Justice in Greater Miami
Greater Miami faces some of the most severe impact of climate change on the globe, including sea level rise and extreme weather. Learn how the city's low income residents and communities of color are especially vulnerable to these impacts and what climate leaders are doing to adapt and build resilience in our front-line communities. Finally, learn strategies for covering climate to get this key information to your audiences, gain story ideas and meet key sources.
