Citizen Advocacy: Tools to Advance Seismic Safety Policy - YMC Webinar -

Wednesday, October 28, 2 pm EST/ 11 am PST
Cost: Free

Presented by the EERI Younger Members Committee, this webinar will introduce how you may take steps to become a seismic safety policy advocate. While getting started in advocacy may seem daunting, advocating for seismic safety policy and advocacy is an important facet of EERI members' expertise and professional practice. The discussion will cover the recently released Citizen Advocate Toolkit, explaining government structures and guides for interacting with representatives and policymakers. We will review case studies of past and current seismic safety-related laws, ordinances, and bills, and provide information on how to best communicate science and engineering concepts to non-technical audiences. The webinar will also cover what it’s like to work with and for a public agency on various types of policies, and leave you with actions you can take today in progressing seismic safety in your locale and state. Speakers include Jack English, the University of Texas at Austin, and Zahraa Saiyed, Scyma Consulting LLC.
