Earthquake Preparedness Webinar with Dr. Lucy Jones
Dec 7 @ 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

The COVID-19 pandemic made it clear that we need to proactively prepare, now, for the next major natural disaster or emergency. The next life-altering event could be “the Big One,” an earthquake so large that it disrupts our way of living in the LA area for weeks, months, or even years.

I’m joining Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian and renowned seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones to host an Earthquake Preparedness Webinar Dec 7th at 7:00 p.m., where we’ll discuss the next big Southern California earthquake and what we can do as renters, homeowners, and community leaders to prepare ourselves and our neighbors.

Join us by registering here.

Join us as we discuss what resources are available to our community’s organizations that our residents depend on, the ever evolving role of philanthropy, its opportunities and pitfalls, and what role the state might play in providing support to these non-profits and the constituents they serve.
