The climate crisis is increasing extreme weather events like flooding and extreme heat are increasing in severity and intensity in neighborhoods like Northern Manhattan. In the effort to create a comprehensive community driven emergency preparedness plan that focuses on climate related disasters, WE ACT for Environmental Justice partnered with East Harlem COAD and Harlem Emergency Network to create the Climate Ready Uptown Plan (CRUP).
CRUP is a physical pamphlet that helps Northern Manhattan community members understand their individual risk to climate related disasters – specifically extreme heat and flooding. Throughout the summer of 2023, WEACT for Environmental Justice is planning to partner with community organizations across Northern Manhattan to host workshops related to emergency preparedness. In this two hour workshop, WE ACT will distribute the CRUP pamphlet to attendees and engage participants in the basics of how to use and personalize their version of CRUP.
This workshop will be held at the North Academic Center Ballroom. The NAC Ballroom is on the first floor directly to the right of the main entrance of the NAC building on 160 Convent Avenue. All visitors without a CUNY ID will need to sign in with security with a picture ID.
