Hurricane Florence Survivors Summit
On January 26th the first Florence Survivor’s Summit was held in Wilmington, NC. Over 180 people attended, and we covered housing and transportation costs and provided childcare for any survivors who requested it. Also, we provided breakfast and a large catered lunch. A focus on community response and the aftermath of Florence were major takeaways; Environmental Impacts, Housing and Displacement, and Legal Aid were also discussed. The Florence Coalition is in the process of reviewing the summit, discussing lessons learned, and how to make the next Summit (tentatively planned for spring) an even greater success.
