Print Are You Ready for a Ruckus?

Will you be ready if a disaster strikes? What about your neighborhood? Who’s responsible for making a plan for your community? On the tail of Hurricane Irene and a rare NYC earthquake, CUP and students in a College Now program interviewed insurance mavens, city and federal disaster planners, and environmental justice organizations to understand what disaster planning looks like on a community level.

Their booklet, Are You Ready for a Ruckus, is a tool for community organizations who’d like to start thinking about community preparedness, what that might look like, and why it matters.

This booklet was produced as a collaboration of CUP, CUP teaching artist Fatima Abdul-Nabi, students from the College Now Program at New Design High School and the Urban Assembly Academy for Government and Law, and designer Jennifer Korff.
