Climate Safe Neighborhood Map
What does housing discrimination have to do with climate change? Over the past three years, Groundwork Milwaukee has been providing technical support through Groundwork GIS to five Groundwork trusts aiming to answer this question. The project is called Climate Safe Neighborhoods and it aims to examine how the legacy of federally supported segregationist policy, like redlining, dictates which neighborhoods are most vulnerable to severe heat and flooding predicted to be caused by climate change.
