The Building Blocks of Mutual Aid for Disaster Resilience

Interfaith and Wellbeing | Workshop

With many impacts of climate change already locked in, there is a growing understanding that preparedness is one of our communities greatest tools to create resilience, recognizing that for many at risk of being left behind, no one is coming to save them: we must save ourselves.

If communities at risk anticipate not being able to receive government assistance following major disasters, then we must create mutual aid networks, to ensure that we are ready for any situation that may emerge.

This workshop will explore, in the lead up to disasters, how marginalized communities can create preparedness, connecting with existing systemic resources, and make the case for the importance of mutual aid, training attendees on how to create, maintain, and support their own networks of mutual aid.

Participants will walk away understanding how we can work, from a bottom up approach, aligning with government systems and existing community resources, to strengthen our preparedness thru building disaster resilience using mutual aid networks.
