If you’re interested in increasing disaster preparedness efforts within the Latino community, then don’t miss this upcoming webinar.

Listen as presenters highlight components of the recently-released
emergency management toolkit designed to improve responsiveness to Latinos in disaster planning, relief, and recovery efforts. This toolkit was developed by the National Council of La Raza in collaboration with the Office of Minority Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Mosaica: The Center for Nonprofit Development and Pluralism, and the National Immigration Law Center.

Additional webinar topics include:

  • FEMA tools and community best practices supporting the inclusion of Latino communities in local emergency management.
  • Recommended strategies for increasing Latino Community preparedness efforts.
  • Best practices for empowering Latinos to participate fully and equitably in response efforts and recovery services.
