The historic flooding and tornadoes of 2019 disproportionately affected low-income individuals throughout the heartland. LSC’s Midwest Legal Disaster Coordination Project has worked to improve the resilience of at-risk communities by fostering relationships between emergency management, the disaster preparedness community, and legal service providers. After almost five years of progress, the panel will share how preparedness strategies have helped with the delivery of legal services during this year’s major disaster events. The case study will explore lessons learned as well as recommendations from the recent LSC Disaster Task Force Report.
