Join us Tuesday, April 19 3 - 5 p.m.:

• Knowledge Exchange: We are excited to have Dr. Tim Haney share the learnings they gathered through surveys and interviews from those people affected by the floods. They asked a variety of questions, including how people made evacuation decisions, who they leaned on for support, how quickly and under what conditions they returned, and whether they saw themselves living in their neighborhoods over the long term. This session is not necessarily focused on an event but rather the human perceptions and perspectives of people post event.
