Write a reflection in response to the following questions:
1) How does the history of redlining in the United States make communities more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change today? Use data from the Oxfam America’s Social Vulnerability Index and the NAACP’s list of Pre-existing Vulnerabilities/Assets (Links to an external site.) to draw connections about inter-generational inequities and climate vulnerability.
2) Select a community from the list of sources below and describe the ways they are disproportionately at risk of climate impacts.

LGBTQ people (link: https://fresh-energy.org/climate-change-its-an-lgbtq-issue-too/)
3) Select 3 Process/Outcome Indicators from the NAACP report (attached and starting on pg. 5) and offer suggestions of ways communities can invest in these indicators to increase community resilience planning for climate change mitigation, adaptation, and/or disaster relief in response to the vulnerabilities you identified in questions 1 and 2.
