Welcoming Leaders of Women's Eye to Los Angeles
Posted by Councilmember Englander on February 09, 2018 at 9:24 AM
This week, I had the distinct honor to welcome and recognize members of the female-led nonprofit Women’s Eye from the Grassroots Academy Tohoku in Japan to LA City Council.
Created during the aftermath of Japan’s 2011 triple disaster when an earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear power plant meltdown took an estimated 18,000 lives, Women’s Eye empowers women with the tools and training to rebuild their communities in the aftermath of disaster and tragedy.
I want to thank seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones for hosting their visit because we can learn some truly invaluable lessons from their example.
