Providence is putting social and racial equity at the center of its planning for future climate threats. The city earned a $100,000 grant to help with that.

Over the course of three days, a team of experts from around the country helped Providence plan for the impacts of climate change through a grant-funded series of events called ResilientPVD Lab.

Providence Mayor Angel Taveras has announced some staff changes in his office, including the hiring of Brian Hull as director of municipal and intergovernmental affairs.

Taveras, a candidate for the Democratic nomination for governor, said in a news release that Hull will begin work April 28th.  The job is basically a government relations post that includes representing the administration before the Providence City Council.
