This is a very smart partnership. Alpha Phi Alpha is definitely a great organization to engage underrepresented communities in the climate change dialog. Alpha Phi Alpha possesses the leadership and reach to educate and engage nontraditional communities on the subjects of vulnerabilities, mitigation and adaptation.
