Climate Change and Climate Gentrification
Throughout the state, communities of color are disproportionately affected by climate change. Miami ranks 1st in cities worldwide that are at risk for projected losses because of rising sea levels. As sea-level rise increase, areas of higher ground are sought after by developers, which is leaving residents — especially renters — vulnerable to being priced out of their homes.
FANM has been leading the campaign for clean energy, climate equity, and sustainability. We believe that efforts must be made to engage all communities in climate resiliency. As a founding member of the Miami Climate Alliance, we fight to transition to a 100% clean energy environment to build a sustainable future for us all.
Our goal is to allow frontline communities to participate in the clean energy revolution by dramatically improving access. We fight for affordable energy efficiency (insulation, windows, roofs, ACs) for low-income homeowners.
