Climate Protection Project

Rural communities across Alabama are experiencing an increase in climate disasters including more severe tornadoes and hurricanes causing infrastructure insecurity (communications, internet and power outages), lack of access to food and clean water, and unaddressed trauma for impacted families.

We’re committed to working over the next 2 years with rural communities to provide training and healing support to community members who want to work to ensure that your community has a storm preparedness and response plan.

Our goal is to support rural communities protecting themselves from disastrous storms because we believe Alabama’s strength lies in thriving rural communities!

We are launching a rural canvass in partnership with Hometown Organizing Project and Political Healers project to engage in over 1,000 conversations with rural Alabamians in 5 counties that are at risk or have experienced recent climate disasters. This is the first of a four-phase project that will provide healing support, train rural residents to organize for more resilient communities, and invite them to form local climate protection teams. 

Volunteer now to join our canvass team! You'll have the option to join a door to door canvass or a phone bank. All volunteers must attend one of the training dates list on the volunteer form.
