Actions You Can Take: Women Preparing for Disaster

Actions You Can Take: Women Preparing for Disaster
- a workshop on how women can better plan, reduce risk and respond when disaster strikes.
Saturday March 26th / 13:30 - 16:30 / Members ¥2000 / Non-members ¥2500
March marks the fifth anniversary of the Tohoku disaster. But five years on, how well prepared are we? Have you considered how you as a woman might be impacted if a major disaster strikes? What’s your plan in the event of “the big one?” Facilitator Sarajean Rossitto will introduce some gender gaps that exist in disaster response as well as the basics of disaster prevention and preparation. Following the presentation will be an activity allowing everyone to deepen their ability to be ready.
Any proceeds from this event will be donated to our community service partners, Mirai no Mori and Second Harvest Japan.
