Frontline communities are those that endure the “first and worst” of climate change. The Our Communities, Our Bay research project follows households in frontline communities in the San Francisco Bay Area, as the region is impacted by wildfire smoke and heat waves. This project seeks to identify which interventions best serve the needs of the community, and result in reduced exposure and improved health outcomes.
