Please join the Opportunity Forum on October 6 for our first event of the fall, After the Storm: Building Resilient and Equitable Communities. 12:00 to 1:30 PM. The University of Texas at Austin Law School, Francis Auditorium (TNH 2.114), 727 E. Dean Keeton Street, Austin, TX 78705.
Now that the floodwaters have receded, the communities ravaged by Hurricane Harvey are beginning the long, hard road of rebuilding. Historically underserved populations—including low-income persons of color—face especially daunting challenges. What needs to be done to help the most vulnerable survivors rebuild their lives? How can we protect all residents from future flooding and exposure to other hazards? And what lessons have we learned from prior disasters to ensure that disaster recovery funds are spent more equitably and effectively? Join us for a conversation on these questions and more, as we discuss how to build resilient and equitable communities after Hurricane Harvey.
This event is free, and will include lunch. Register now to reserve your seat.
