Today on Your Call: What has Superstorm Sandy revealed about relief efforts?

Nov 19, 2012

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the largest relief effort in US history. Tens of thousands of residents at the end of subway lines are still in dire need of help. What role has the government played? What about Occupy Sandy? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. What can we learn from relief efforts in order to prepare for the next earthquake? And what are the best organizations to support? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Olivia Leirer, an organizer with New York Communities for change

Jeffrey Mount, a professor of geology, director emeritus and founding director of the Center for Watershed Sciences at UC Davis
