What we do
We engage in storytelling and education via social media, microdocs and live discussion sessions to help people learn about digital and climate justice.
We co-create solutions with communities, such as our risk mapping project, community resilience gardens and advocacy tools.
We specialize in accessible research. Our team writes policy frameworks, white papers and toolkits for equitable, green, connected communities.

In Buzzard Point DC, we mapped how a history of racial inequity and lack of Internet access created multiple level of risk in an already overburdened community.

Policy Paper – How the nation’s emergency management agency can confront climate change, inequity and the digital divide
September is National Preparedness Month. Emergency managers and public safety professionals are on the frontlines of climate change.
