Hurricane Sandy, in 2012, was a cruel reminder of how vulnerable our communities are, especially immigrant neighborhoods.How do we prepare our audiences to build strategies and political power to address adversity and adapt successfully?Join us for a workshop that will broaden your understanding of climate change and give you new tools and resources to create engaging stories.
