Climate change is a human rights issue. 13 million U.S. coastal residents are expected to be displaced by 2100 due to sea level rise. This webinar will showcase recent research and work compiled by CLF, Antioch University, and the state of VT on the potential impacts on receiving communities. Discussion will also center on how cities can start to plan and engage their community members on preparing for these impacts. Strategies to tackle climate change must prioritize the most impacted and least resourced communities.
