the project

Culture Road/Initiative for Collaborative Action to Rescue Our Environment is nonprofit group that is engaged environmental justice through public education using visual art, digital, and podcasting.

Not engaged in news reporting, Culture Road instead operates as a collective of audio, video, visual arts, and literary platform for discussions, commentary, and criticisms of culture and ecology. For its part, ICARE-A collaborates with partners on the ground to improve sustainable living and ecological justice in economically poor, minority communities in New York City.

Our first project is to mitigate climate change risks and build up resiliency in the often-neglected neighborhoods in South Bronx, Upper Manhattan, and Central Brooklyn. These are places where the elderly, children, homeless, and immigrants are left vulnerable to potential health risks linked to climate change.

the steps

As part of this project, we are raising money for a research study for community social capital, which would generate extra data to fill in the gaps left by inadequate government data gathering programs. These gaps are the result of city, state and federal agencies using outdated census data that lag by 10 years to design policies that affect urban communities.

why we're doing it

We want to show the missing social indicators in government modeling is why they fail in their policy goals. Our overall agenda is to improve or come up with better strategies for mitigating urgent environmental risks by supporting community-led development.
