The Post-Sandy Initiative


DfRR is proud to have been the gen­e­sis of a full-court-press response to Super­storm Sandy.  Many mem­bers of AIANY and of oth­er part­ner orga­ni­za­tions have car­ried the Post-Sandy Ini­tia­tive through.  In rapid order, they — and DfRR com­mit­tee mem­bers among them — pro­duced infor­ma­tion, insights, and inspi­ra­tion.

Among the results, beyond the devel­op­ment of a very informed com­mu­ni­ty, are a report, back­ground mate­ri­als, many inau­gur­al events, a plat­form for dis­cus­sion with leg­is­la­tors, and a run­ning start on a strong response to future storms and oth­er dis­as­ters.  For fur­ther infor­ma­tion about this, please vis­it the Post-Sandy Ini­tia­tive web­site.

You can fol­low the Post-Sandy Ini­tia­tive as it evolves through its own web­site,, through AIANY’s cov­er­age, and through DfRR bul­letins on this web­site.  And if you have thoughts about this response to Sandy, by all means let us hear from you @_dfrr.
