  • Deaf-Led Disaster Resilience Series

    The Global Alliance for Disaster Resource Acceleration (GADRA) and Gallaudet University hosted a three-part event series titled, “Deaf-Led Disaster Resilience”.

    Series description: Disability-inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction is a growing field of practice, yet deaf, deafblind, hard of hearing, and deaf-disabled people have been widely marginalized from everyday disaster communication, as well as disaster management training and leadership roles. GADRA and Gallaudet University are partnering on an event series to draw attention to, and open a set of conversations about, deaf people and disasters. The series includes a webinar on disaster action by deaf-led organizations, an expert panel on deaf leadership in international disaster policy, and interviews with deaf youth leaders about disaster action. Data, ideas, and experiences shared during the three events will be used to inform future initiatives and response efforts. Click here to learn more about each event and to access the recordings.
