She will explain the five key components of Resilience Hubs and provide examples of where they are working best throughout the country. She will also provide attendees with additional resources developed to support stakeholders interested in developing Resilience Hubs in communities.
Cherie Brooks at Power52 will discuss Power52’s experience developing multiple Resilience Hubs in Baltimore, Maryland. She will highlight job training benefits and best practices.
Amee Raval will discuss APEN's new policy report released in partnership with SEIU CA and Blue-Green Alliance entitled "Resilience Before Disaster: The Need to Build Equitable, Community-Driven Social Infrastructure" that makes the case to invest in building equitable, community-driven social infrastructure for Californians with the fewest material resources to recover. The report provides a state-level policy framework for community resilience by building out a model for resilience hubs that integrates disaster response and recovery into existing social assets that are already embedded in communities.
