FEMA will host three Civil Rights Stakeholder Summits throughout November and December.
Motivated by FEMA’s core values of compassion, fairness, integrity and respect, the goal of each summit is to strengthen the foundation for an inclusive, whole-community based approach to emergency management.
FEMA understands that disasters impact individuals and communities differently. To foster a more inclusive, prepared and resilient nation, FEMA seeks to strengthen the agency’s communication with members of underserved and historically marginalized communities, such as those with low income, differing ethnic groups and limited English proficiency.
Perspectives and feedback from the public are critical to ensure FEMA effectively prepares and serves all communities before, during and after disasters.
