T-Talks Series: (Talk #2) Transportation + Climate Change

What is climate change anyway?
Why is it such a hot topic in communities of color?
What does it have to do with transportation and systematic racism?
What does it have to do with me?

Changes in the environment affect the weather and impact how people live. Low income communities and people of color are more vulnerable to these changes. The way streets are designed can play a role in living healthier and longer lives.

The second T-Talk will focus on how change in climate affects communities and those living in it. It will end with Q&A questions from our audience.

Who are the T-Talks for: The T-Talks series is for anyone who wants to learn more about transportation. They are prioritizing residents of Mattapan, Dorchester, Hyde Park, and Roxbury and those who identify as BIPOC.

There will be more T-Talks focused on climate change, well-being, gentrification and more!
