It's been over two years since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico and islanders are still waiting for the FEMA disaster relief funds that were initially promised. But instead of waiting for federal assistance, a grassroots network of local aid centers has emerged and is beginning to rebuild the neighborhoods that were hardest hit.
As climate change makes these kinds of disasters more common, local resiliency efforts are becoming crucial to help prepare communities to respond to events like hurricanes, floods, wildfires, and heatwaves.
Join 350 Seattle for “The Response: How Puerto Ricans Are Restoring Power to the People,” a 30-minute micro-budget film about the recovery in Puerto Rico, exploring how mutual aid centers sprung up across the island while centering the voices of those involved in these bold grassroots relief efforts and the movement for popular power that is continuing to emerge
Stay back for a post-film discussion about what we can do in Seattle to prepare and to be ready to help our neighbors if a disaster of this magnitude were to strike our region. Representatives from the Seattle and UW Offices of Emergency Management will join you with resources for people who are interested in learning more.
