A study by the University of Manchester and Friends of the Earth said that people of color account for 28% of the population in districts most affected by heat waves.

Housing in these areas is less equipped to cope with high temperatures, and the neighborhoods often lack green spaces and natural shade.

The report said a person of color has a one-in-three chance of living in an at-risk area, compared to a White person with a one-in-12 chance. Learn more about how charities are addressing this at the link in bio.
