______________________________________________________________


New York City is sinking.  Or, more accurately, sea levels are rising.  We see more super storms and wild weather events.  Hurricanes and tornados, once historic are now commonplace.  Climate change may be contested in Congress, but real people are struggling to weather the ravages of storms like Hurricane Sandy a whole year later. These weather events hurt us all.  And yet, we are all not equally able to rebuild and to implement our innovations to make us stronger.  People of color make up almost two-thirds of the City's population.  Places of innovation, not just tribulation, communities of color in and around the City are integral to its future.

Recognizing the opportunity to build a prosperous and inclusive future, the Center for Social Inclusion presents, in collaboration with the Pratt Institute Programs for Sustainable Planning & Development, a series of town hall community conversations in New York City neighborhoods most impacted by Hurricane Sandy - the Lower East Side, Brooklyn and the Rockaways.

Maya Wiley, Founder & President of the Center for Social Inclusion, and CSI Board member Professor Ron Shiffman, Pratt Institute School of Architecture, Graduate Center for Planning and the Environment will lead the conversations. Joining them for each of the conversations will be Eddie Bautista, Executive Director of the NYC Environmental Justice Alliance.  Other special guests will include architects, planners, artists, environmental activists and community leaders.

The conversations will focus on our common interest in a racially inclusive set of recovery, adaptation, mitigation and planning strategies to address the effects of climate change.  

Seating for each conversation is limited.  Please reply ASAP for one, two or all conversations.
