About the Seminar
Recovers.Org provides free software and support to recovering areas immediately after a disaster. In this brownbag presentation, the organization’s co-founders will discuss how the services Recovers.Org provides allows towns to capture the goodwill of people post-disaster – and turn it into action – amidst the chaos that frequently characterizes early relief and recovery efforts. They will speak about their motivations for creating the organization – and the successes and challenges they’ve experienced since Recovers.Org launched.

Moderated by Arnold Howitt, Executive Director, Ash Center for Democratic Governance & Innovation, and Faculty Co-Director, Program on Crisis Leadership.
