Lee Andrews Group collaborated with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to address the challenge of building longterm resilience in historically underserved communities.
We conducted in-depth assessments, engaging in surveys, focus groups, interviews, and data analysis to understand the unique needs and vulnerabilities of these communities. Through partnerships with community-based organizations, non-profits, Tribal governments, and local leaders, we fostered trust and collaboration. Our approach included the development of culturally sensitive and linguistically appropriate outreach materials and strategies.
We utilized various communication channels such as community meetings, workshops, social media, local media, and newsletters to reach a diverse audience. Additionally, we provided educational resources and training programs tailored to the specific needs of these communities. The outcome of our efforts was the empowerment of these communities to better withstand climate change impacts, natural disasters, and environmental challenges. They gained knowledge, skills, and resources to mitigate risks, adapt to changing conditions, and recover from adverse events.
This initiative contributed to the creation of more equitable, sustainable, and resilient communities in historically underserved areas, promoting a fair and inclusive society.
