How can equity be further integrated into emergency response?

On January 29, 2019 we hosted a panel discussion to explore equity in planning for, responding to, and recovering from natural and man made emergencies. More than ninety people joined us in CUPA’s Parsons Gallery to learn more about how equity is being integrated into emergency response and what more needs to be done.
