Numbers Don’t Lie: Data, Disasters, and Racial Disparities

Host Organization: Center for Disaster Philanthropy


Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) in the United States are disproportionately affected by disasters. This disparity stems from decades of historical and systemic disinvestment and discrimination in communities of color, resulting in socio-economic inequities, poor health outcomes, high incarceration rates and environmental justice issues.

For example, data shows that BIPOC communities are experiencing a higher number of deaths from COVID-19 than their white counterparts.

In this webinar, speakers will share and analyze available data and discuss the connection between racial equity and the impact of disasters on communities of color. They will also provide recommendations for how grantmakers and donors can help address root causes, support equitable recovery and mitigate disasters’ impacts.
