First Day School at 9:20am on 10/8: Grassroots Relief and Empowerment on Houston's East Side


By Leada Dietz - Posted on September 29 2017

Come 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.
