The Partnership for Resilient CommunitiesThe Partnership for Resilient Communities (PRC) works to transform the national urban climate resilience field by increasing the number of leaders of color in the urban field of practice, advancing approaches that build the resilience of people and places through influence-building and policy approaches, community education and engagement, and the installation of clean energy and green infrastructure.

The PRC works to ensure that leaders and organizations of color are fully participating in and lead climate resilience planning and decision-making, leading to policies and practices informed and designed by those closest to the problems.

The PRC partners with community-based organizations that are led-by people of color, serving urban communities of color that are most vulnerable to climate change, and demonstrating the desire to influence their local climate agenda. PRC partners participate in virtual and in-person peer-learning activities where they share and receive knowledge and expertise, receive technical assistance, training and coaching, and receive strategic financial support.
