About Us

Resilient Palisades is a neighbor-led community group committed to working together to mount a local response to the climate and ecological crisis. Through local action, we are transforming social and cultural norms.

We believe that local activism is a key step to achieving global change. Founded in 2019 by a small group of concerned neighbors, we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit with a rapidly expanding number of volunteers and members.

Values

We welcome all members of our community – including homeowners, renters, students, and people who work or have businesses in the Palisades. We strive to maintain a non-judgmental, warm, and inclusive culture.

Supporters

We give special thanks to our generous sponsors and supporters: our work would not be possible without you!

Volunteers

Everything we do depends on the hard work of our wonderful volunteers. Thank you for everything that you do!
