Resilience Force, The New Florida Majority


This report is deeply rooted in our experiences working directly with communities in Florida that have struggled to recover and rebuild after Hurricane Irma in 2017 and Hurricane Michael in 2018. It investigates Florida’s failures in response to Hurricanes Irma and Michael and offers insights for organizations, policymakers, and elected officials in the growing movements for resilience and just recovery. The report also includes a number of inspiring examples of grassroots organizations that have stepped into the vacuum created by the government’s inaction and have pioneered creative and effective strategies.
