Working Towards a More Resilient Nation

Join Missy Stults for an interactive discussion of the meaning of “resilience” and how cities around the U.S. are using the term to guide their planning and implementation efforts. We'll explore how the federal government and states are supporting or limiting efforts to enhance place-based resilience. Some analysts predict that the word of the year for 2017 will be resilience. But what does it mean, how is it operationalized (or not), and what do we need to do across scales and sectors to create a more resilient nation?

We need change NOW...Here's HOW

Karine Jean-Pierre

Karine Jean-Pierre speaks to the U-M campus MLK Day theme, The Fierce Urgency of Now. This theme calls us to claim ownership of the challenges we face and not leave it for future generations to address. Amidst technological advancements and increased global connections, much work still needs to be done to heal the wounds of our past, and resolve the injustices of our present. The Fierce Urgency of Now compels us to not only act but to also acknowledge that the absence of action and the continuation of silence, serves to bring us deeper into the shadows of division.
