FEMA announces Memorandum of Agreement with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)

from IAEM

On July 12, 2013, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Craig Fugate and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) President and CEO Benjamin Jealous signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) at the NAACP's 104th Annual Conference in Orlando, Fla. The agreement will expand outreach to traditionally underserved communities through the NAACP network of more than 300,000 members. Through the MOA, FEMA and the NAACP will work to ensure that the needs of underrepresented communities are more fully incorporated into disaster preparedness, response, recovery and mitigation-related activities. The two agencies also will share information, such as lessons learned, best practices and training resources, to improve community resilience. more
