Grassroots Relief and Empowerment on Houston’s Eastside
October 8, 2017 @ 9:20 am - 10:20 amFree
Join Cavanaugh Nweze and Andrew Cobb of West Street Recovery to hear about grassroots relief work and ongoing empowerment work in communities of color in Houston’s Eastside. The team started out doing boat rescues and 5 weeks after the storm they continue to demo homes and coordinate supply needs for these communities. They are also working on longterm visioning of empowerment in these communities. Come hear about their work and how we can turn a crisis from a danger into an opportunity for underserved communities.
