Disaster Resilience Learning Network

A virtual network led by and for leaders of color

Every person should have an equal opportunity to survive a disaster.

As we prepare Oregon’s communities to respond to increasingly frequent and severe climate disasters, communities of color deserve equitable access to linguistically and culturally relevant, lifesaving disaster preparedness resources. We must understand what we are doing to support these communities, what we are missing, and how to ensure we are all prepared for the next disaster.

Our nonprofit leaders from across Oregon support communities of color impacted by climate disasters. Convening partners for this Network include: OHA, United Way of the Columbia-Willamette, and Trauma Informed Oregon.
