Make it Resilient

Building and Updating Infrastructure for a Changing World

Hosted by United for Infrastructure

Climate change poses big existential challenges for America with impacts on national security, natural disaster response and recovery, and increasing our economic competitiveness, just to name a few. But, it’s also about issues that impact our everyday lives–making enough money to support our families, keeping our lights and heat on during storms, ensuring that high tides and rain don’t swamp our streets and basements, protecting our children from harmful chemicals, and so much more. This event is focused on connecting much needed investments in infrastructure decarbonization and resilience to real improvements in American’s daily lives.
