In the face of climate disasters, it’s important we keep taking action for justice. We must call for a city that provides all its residents access to safe shelter in extreme weather events and is actively prioritizing investing in life-saving infrastructure, like cooling centers and trees. In the face of an uncertain future, events like Heat Week bring us together to create better prepared and more resilient communities. The 2021 Heat Dome was a stark reminder of both the urgency and the compassion with which we must act to meet the climate crisis – I’m glad we’re in this together!
In solidarity and action,
Brenna Bell, Forest Climate Manager
