During September 24–30* each year, we mark Climate Preparedness Week, dedicated to learning, service, and actions that better prepare our communities for extreme weather events. By coming together to host events, we provide the resources and space to think about the ways that climate change disadvantages some communities more than others.
By coming together to host educational and service-oriented events, we can equip ourselves and our communities with the resources, tools, and mindsets to build resilience in the face of changing weather and our changing climate. We’ll explore how severe weather and climate change affects us all--locally, globally, publicly, and personally. Additionally, we’ll learn about how the impacts of climate change and extreme weather intersect with racial, social, and economic justice and how we can respond to these changes from the ground up and the top down.

Climate Justice: Finding Equitable Solutions to the Climate Crisis
Climate change is the number one existential threat to humanity and the planet, but some communities are more vulnerable than others. Where do social justice and climate change overlap? How can we, as concerned community members, fight climate change in a way that is just and equitable for all? Join Nia Keith, Mass Audubon's Vice President for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice, in an interactive lecture on climate justice. This event will be held in person with an option to join virtually via Zoom.
