Welcome to this week’s edition of What’s Up Eastie?! On today’s show, we’re talking about climate change, environmental justice, and how climate change affects different demographics of East Bostonians differently. We’re joined by Gabriela Boscio, Climate Program Manager, and Melinda Vega, Community Engagement Coordinator, both from Neighborhood of Affordable Housing, Inc. (NOAH).
