Cameron Oglesby (MPP ’23) on Community Activism in the Southeast U.S. After Historic Floods, Yale Climate Connections

Polis Student Committee member Cameron Oglesby (MPP ’23) writes for the Yale Climate Connection on community activism after historic floods ravaged the Southeast this past summer. Local community members and neighbors are demanding government action including recovery efforts and investments in infrastructure, drainage, and buffering floodwaters. Oglesby argues that the “need will only grow more dire, as floods and other extreme weather events are projected to worsen in the coming decades.”
