As the climate crisis worsens, the potential for vulnerable New Yorkers to adapt to climate-induced disasters will become increasingly difficult. NYC religious communities are on the front lines of the climate emergency, often the primary contact for advice and services. In 2022, NYDIS launched a “Climate Resilience Program” for NYC clergy and religious lay leaders serving dis-invested communities. Drawing from existing NYDIS trainings, networks, and city-wide resources, the program will offer low-cost/no-cost climate resilience resources, networking events, trainings, and vulnerability analyses to help NYC clergy and lay leaders make effective plans, harden facilities, and answer tangible questions for climate vulnerable stakeholders.
