As the urgency for climate justice rises, so does the commitment of the NorCal Resilience Network to uplift and support community resilience solutions around the region.

We invite YOU: community activists, businesses, governmental agencies and grassroots organizations who are turning despair into action through people-powered, nature-inspired, and community-based solutions.
