More than a year after Hurricane Sandy hit New York City and surrounding area, one of the conundrums of disaster aid and recovery remains: how do we ensure that plans for recovery match the different needs of diverse populations and ensure higher resilience for future disasters? Join Superstorm Research Lab, a mutual aid research collective, and our allies in free, open workshops designed to address past, current, and future problems related to disaster and the complexities of justice on the ground. Workshops will be followed by a panel discussion, “A Tale of Two Sandys,” that highlights current research in this area.
