Frontline Communities

Frontline communities have different barriers to engage in climate change, with the tools and opportunities to participate and be informed on conversations regarding local issues to provide local solutions.

Air Quality

Living near high volume roadways and freeways and industrial areas increases exposure to a mixture of air pollutants, including diesel exhaust. Fine particulate matter can cause asthma attacks in children, in addition to impaired lung function, premature death and death from cardiovascular diseases and cardiovascular morbidity.

Sea Level Rise

The intensifying effects of climate change pose a clear threat to the health and well-being of Bay Area residents. This is particularly true for communities that experience health inequities—the systemic and unjust disparities in health outcomes that exist by race, income, neighborhood, language, immigration status, and other factors.
