Throughout the year, the Resilient Nation Partnership Network (RNPN) co-creates a variety of materials to help share the vast knowledge represented in the Network, as well as reflect on learnings from our partner events including the Resilience Exchanges and Ideation Hours. Please see the latest resources below. We welcome you to share them with your peers and networks.

Partner Voices Audio Series

To continue advancing conversations around equity and resilience, the RNPN produced the “Partner Voices” narratives featured in the “Building Alliances for Equitable Resilience” resource. The stories were authored from the perspectives of four diverse partners with narration from Justin Knighten, FEMA director of External Affairs.

“Tribal/indigenous people are the First People of this nation, survived forced relocations and removals from traditional homelands, and are now emerging as the leaders in climate change adaptation and mitigation.

“We have a long way to go culturally and socially in encouraging individuals to engage in deep, inward reflection so we can all better understand our respective roles in a racist system – not as a personal flaw, but as something we were born into and have the power to change.” -Anna Marandi, National League of Cities

“Remembering Our Most Vulnerable During Times of Need”

Featuring Valerie Novack, Center for American Progress

“We cannot continue to only write and talk about building networks, practices, and communities that are prepared for and resilient to disaster events. We must actively engage in the changes necessary to make them so, and we hope that resources such as these are the start to that work.” -Valerie Novack, Utah State University; Formerly Center for American Progress

“Nothing About Us, Without Us”

Featuring Jake White, National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders
English transcript | Spanish transcript

“Most of the signs of a struggling neighborhood can be attributed to local disinvestment, but just because a neighborhood does not receive local investment does not mean that the neighborhood has not created a community with inherent worth.” -Jake White, National Association for Latino Community Asset Builders

Insights and Reflections

“Insights and Reflections” are co-developed after each Resilience Exchange and Ideation Hour with input from the panelists of each event. They highlight the main takeaways from each discussion and serve as valuable resources that can be shared and referenced for continued learning.
