Join Pro Bono Net & the Center for Urban Pedagogy for the official launch of Figuring Out FEMA, a new pocket-sized, trauma-informed visual resource for people affected by natural disasters. Figuring Out FEMA helps natural disaster survivors apply for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and will be available for free download nationwide. Speakers will talk about 1) legal empowerment as a tool for action and 2) equity-based design principles and strategies used to develop Figuring Out FEMA. This webinar will be recorded and shared via www.disasterlegalaid.org. All registrants will receive a link to the recording after the webinar.
