If you have a bit of time and are interested in learning how community members in New Orleans rallied together and organized in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, please take a moment to watch this fantastic and informative conversation with New Orleans Councilwoman LaToya Cantrell for the Disaster Resilience Summit:
Join your neighbors as we continue to the work of making our neighborhood a safer place for everyone, especially the most vulnerable, during times of stress - RSVP today:
This event is open to everyone in the community, especially to our recent NERT graduates and residents who are NERT trained but no longer certified.
I just wanted to remind you that the Resilient Miraloma Park Resilience Workshop on Earthquakes is tonight starting at 630pm at the Cornerstone Trinity Baptist Church on 480 Teresita.
The evening will feature:
• A community dinner where we encourage folks to share their “where were you in ‘89” stories
• A report-out on the outcomes from the previous Heatwave workshop
• A presentation by NERT about its role in supporting Miraloma Park during a disaster
• An update from the Neighborland on the idea prioritization happening online
• Small group planning exercises designed by MIT Urban Risk Lab and SF State
