SCIPP, a NOAA RISA team, to host a climate justice-focused webinar on Disaster Recovery and Preparedness for Communities on the Frontlines

Simone Domingue, a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow for SCIPP, a NOAA RISA team, is hosting a series of webinars and conversations to raise awareness of climate justice's significance in future adaptation. The webinars will offer actionable ideas for participants to bring back to their communities for proactive planning. The second virtual webinar, titled “The Next Big One: The Ongoing Work of Disaster Recovery and Preparedness for Communities on the Frontlines” will be co-hosted with Louisiana’s Disaster Justice Network and will take place on September 16th at 1 pm CT. 

This session will highlight stories from community leaders and organizers in the Gulf South who are preparing their communities for future severe weather events and disruptions, even in the midst of ongoing recovery from previous disasters. It will be an excellent opportunity to learn about grassroots resilience efforts and how they center justice for people most at risk.
