This report was created in partnership with UPROSE to explore transformative policies, plans, and designs that can provide implementation opportunities for the Sunset Park Green Resilient Industrial District proposal. The work, part of a Kresge Climate Change, Health and Equity planning grant. It is intended to support disruption of the status quo that is rooted in extractive systems and processes, which have obstructed the social, economic, and cultural liberations and opportunities of the multi-racial, multi-generational community of Sunset Park, Brooklyn, and instead continue to marginalize the community and perpetuate its vulnerabilities.
