A message from Neighborhood of Affordable Housing, Inc (NOAH)
NOAH's great ClimateCARE team is planning an East Boston Climate Summit on Saturday, October 28, from 10AM to 2:30PM, at the Umana Academy on Border Street in East Boston. Climate change brings the increasing threat of sea-level rise, damaging floods, warming temperatures, and changing storm patterns. The diverse and vibrant peninsular community of East Boston is poised to experience these threats in a big way. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria and Sandy have taught us that large urban centers can suffer loss of life and severe property damage. Personal and institutional preparedness are necessary in the face of these increasing challenges. The City of Boston and other City/State agencies are making plans to protect East Boston - its people, its businesses, and its community. NOAH is working closely with the City and various agencies so that plans make sense for all of East Boston's residents. Mayor Marty Walsh, a national climate change leader, is our invited speaker, along with Oscar A. Chacón, co-founder and executive director of Alianza Americas, an immigrant-serving organization. Our elected local representatives will also be speaking. There will be a variety of interesting workshops to attend.
