Critical Year for Community and Public Health
Many of our partners are stepping up in new ways to keep our community healthy and strong: Delivering local, fresh food to neighbors who are stuck at home. Moving their educational programs online to reach kids where they are. Providing support to our most vulnerable neighbors. And all of them are continuing to step up to face the slower-moving climate emergency that's still in the background and to work in a hundred different ways to make our community greener, healthier, more welcoming, and more connected.
Who could have imagined the environmental challenges and choices we face today?
A climate emergency. Huge public health challenges?
What will New Haven and our planet look like in another 50 years?
We get to decide, with our actions and voices, what come next. Will you step up to raise support for the organizations working for a greener, healthier, more welcoming and just community, now and into the future? It's going to take all of us.
