Living in Challenging Times: Perspectives on Poverty and Climate Resilience

  • California Theatre 351 Railroad Avenue Pittsburg, CA, 94565 United States (map)

Please join Greenbelt Alliance in partnership with the Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge for an expert panel and community conversation around poverty and climate resilience. We’ll explore several of the major factors behind increased poverty in our communities, examine its current effects on people and institutions, address future impacts of climate change in our communities, and examine some inspiring efforts to address the current and future needs of our low-income communities.

Poverty is on the rise throughout the Bay Area. Yet the effects are often most severe at the edges of the region. Eastern Contra Costa County is no exception. Socio-economic disparities are creating new and unique challenges for low-income residents, particularly people of color, in our communities. Sea level rise and other climate change impacts will exacerbate these existing challenges and disproportionately create long-term consequences for low-income communities of color.

Please join us! This event is free and open to the public. RSVP by contacting Amy Hartman ahartman@greenbelt.org and reserve an Eventbrite ticket. A light dinner will be served.
