On this week's episode of Shareable's The Response podcast, we’re continuing to delve into community-rooted responses to disasters with "Higher Ground," part four of BUT NEXT TIME, a limited-run podcast that spotlights powerful stories of community-led disaster prevention and recovery.
In this episode of The Response we’ll travel to Houston, Texas, with Chrishelle Palay and Rose Arrieta, hosts of But Next Time, to meet these changemakers in the final episode of their limited-run podcast.
When communities face the aftermath of catastrophes, what does it take to ensure that the next time will be different?
In Houston, it takes a city council member who bicycles in her neighborhood to hear from constituents about what they need most. It takes 12 moms who organize to take legal action against the landlords that have kept their families in moldy, substandard apartments. And it takes a city official who blows the whistle on corrupt and dangerous practices related to housing policy.
Listen in to hear their stories as they work tirelessly to ensure that next time will be different.
The Response is an award-winning documentary film, book, and podcast series from Shareable.net exploring how communities are building collective resilience in the wake of disasters with host Tom Llewellyn.
