After the Disaster: Long-Term Outlooks for Mexico and Puerto Rico Reminder – Wednesday January 24th at 4pm in GISB 0001

After the Disaster: Long-Term Outlooks for Mexico and Puerto Rico, a roundtable discussion presented by CLACS and De Pueblo a Pueblo Fund Drive, Wednesday January 24th at 4pm in GISB 0001


Months after hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, creating a vast path of destruction across the island and coinciding almost the day with a series of major earthquakes in central and southern Mexico leaving millions of people without homes, there is a need for reflecting on the long term consequences of natural disasters like these, and the ways they affect communities and their relation to the state and NGO relief efforts. The roundtable will spotlight grassroots relief efforts that have played an increasingly significant role in rebuilding these devastated communities, including the De Pueblo a Pueblo fund drive, an initiative spearheaded by members of the IU community.
