Community-driven approaches for Environmental Justice and Health in the Face of the Climate Crisis: Prioritizing Local Action for Climate Equity (PLACE Study)

Our goal is to empower marginalized communities in building a more climate-resilient Los Angeles through community-academic partnerships, climate justice advocacy, neighborhood-level assessments, and a community climate health action plan. We will use participatory strategies to address climate equity and build community power by increasing knowledge, promoting local solutions, and improving climate change research dissemination
