This webinar will describe the civil rights violations in NYC's emergency planning and disaster response by the federal court in recent litigation. It will provide an overview of agreements negotiated by the parties to remedy those violations dealing with: Shelter; Transportation; Evacuation; Canvassing; Communications; Power Outages; and Reporting and Monitoring. The webinar will also identify key components in emergency planning that promote and support inclusion, integration and equal access. This webinar will allow participants to explore how New York's experience can apply to their situations; the importance of developing solutions that are cross-disability; strategies for crafting agreements; and making the case for inclusion.
