On March 24, 2016 Pacifica's Environmental Family and The Pacifica Climate Committee co-hosted a forum on Sea Level Rise. Nearly 150 people attended this educational event, in which a panel of experts discussed the science of sea level rise and how it may impact Pacificans. 

If you were unable to attend, you can view the full forum at the YouTube video link to the right or you can view the presentations and maps below.
