Join a Google+ Hangout on Building Climate Change Resilience through Community Service

Last week, the Obama Administration announced a new set of actions to support low-income and other vulnerable communities in preparing for the impacts of climate change. Included in this set of actions are new steps to increase the role of community service in helping these communities prepare through the creation of a Resilience AmeriCorps pilot program.

On Wednesday afternoon, senior White House officials and key resilience partners will be hosting a White House Google+ Climate Hangout to discuss President Obama's commitment to protecting vulnerable communities from climate change and the Administration's launch of the Resilience AmeriCorps pilot program.
