Volunteers walked out of the Southside Commons on May 16 to bridge the science to the sidewalk as they hit the streets to ask passers-by how climate changes are impacting communities in South Seattle.
The street survey is part of the Climate Justice Project, a community-based research organized by two people-of-color-led organizations, Got Green and Puget Sound Sage. The project looks at how issues of climate change affect marginalized communities in South Seattle and South King County. The two groups will gather data through surveys until June and are expecting to release a report with recommendations sometime in fall 2015.
