The Stories We Tell

The lives we live and the people we meet can shape our worldview and make us who we are today. The stories we gathered here — and the many that have yet to be told — are from New Yorkers whose experiences with climate change influence their decision to advocate for climate justice and galvanize their communities to act.


We want to hear from you on how climate change has impacted you and your community, what you want to see change, or any actions you are taking to address these challenges. Tell us your story in a short video, audio, or written words.

We will review it for inclusion on the site. We may edit your story for length and clarity.
