Today I got the agenda for the Forum on Race, Climate, and Community Health. It refers to the Minneapolis Climate Action Plan, which was adopted by the Minneapolis City Council in June 2013 following input from the Environmental Justice Working Group. The Plan can be found here: http://www.minneapolismn.gov/sustainability/climate/index.htm.
