CNHED and the DC Office of Resilience invite you to join us for a discussion on urban resilience as part of our continuing series Equitable Communities: Bridging Divides on Thursday, November 15 at DCHFA (815 Florida Ave. NW) from noon to 2:00 pm on “#Resilient DC: Making District Neighborhoods More Resilient.”
What is Urban Resilience?
Urban Resilience is defined as “the capacity of individuals, communities, institutions, businesses, and systems within a city to survive, adapt, and grow no matter what kinds of chronic stresses and acute shocks they experience.”
In order to improve our capacity to not only survive but thrive in the face of potential calamities, organizations need to take holistic approach to properly intervene not only in calamities such as floods, ice and snowstorms, as well as the stresses that weaken the fabric of our District on a day-to-day basis, such as economic hardship, crime, social disparity or racial inequality.
Why Is It important?
As a CNHED member, you have a unique perspective that you can share with the District to implement more equitable policies that better serve its residents, particularly those within low- and moderate-income communities.
Join us to share your feedback directly with the DC Office of Resilience to help share their plans!
