The Cities Climate Finance Leadership Alliance (the Alliance) has launched the Green City Finance Directory, an open, online resource to help subnational governments identify project preparation facilities (PPFs).

What motivates you to do "The Work"? All Aces on Air – "Personal Uprising". October 29, 2020

Executive Director of Community Change, Inc. (CCI) and prolific blogger at her award-winning blog “Black Girl in Maine,” Shay Stewart-Bouley, M.Ed, joins us for All Aces on Air, “Personal Uprising,” to talk about promoting racial justice and equity by challenging systemic racism and organizing for anti-racist learning and action.
At CCI’s upcoming annual Drylongso Awards Celebration (Nov. 13), the central theme is uprising. But how did Shay’s personal uprising begin? How does one person even begin to do “the work”? And how may we each continue to enact change amidst our turbulent times?
Join Dr. S. Atyia Martin, CEM and Shay Stewart-Bouley on Oct. 29th from 1:00 - 2:00 PM as they trace their personal development that led them each to become prominent voices speaking-out and advocating for change against racism in Boston.

You already know that as we move into the Harvest Season, days get shorter, the air gets colder, and in general, each day there is a little less. This is why Team All Aces is excited to bring you even more great content than usual with two episodes on back-to-back datesOct. 29th @ 1:00PM and Oct. 30th @ 11:00AM!
 
On Oct. 29th, 2020 @ 1:00PM, EDT we've got Shay Stewart-Bouley whom you might know from Black Girl in Maine Media, or perhaps from her work with Community Change, Inc., where she serves as Executive Director!
 
Dr. S. Atyia Martin, CEM and Shay Stewart-Bouley will be taking your questions about what it means to have a Personal Uprising as they trace their paths on the journeys of anti-racism and advancing racial equity, discuss the importance of community recognition in anti-racism work, and how people who want to counter the negative impact and dynamics of racism, can get involved on Thursday, Oct. 29th, 2020 @ 1:00PM, EDT!  

 

 

 


FEMA to Host Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Webinars. October - November 2020

 

FEMA to Host Homeland Security Exercise and Evaluation Program (HSEEP) Webinars Focusing on Implementing the Integrated Preparedness Plan (IPP) and Integrated Preparedness Planning Workshop (IPPW) Model

On February 5, 2020, FEMA released the revised 2020 HSEEP Doctrine.  The 2020 HSEEP doctrine continues to make HSEEP a practical and yet effective tool for exercise planners and practitioners across the whole community.

A component of the 2020 HEEP Doctrine was the reimagination of the Training and Exercise Planning Workshop (TEPW) and Training and Exercise Plan (TEP). The TEPW/TEP model did not support the integration of risk assessments, planning efforts, grant priorities, and other preparedness activities to drive exercise activities.

The Integrated Preparedness Plan (IPP) and Integrated Preparedness Planning Workshop (IPPW) model was developed to support the coordination, planning and scheduling of activities across the preparedness cycle.

The IPP/IPPW model has been piloted and refined.  FEMA will host a series of webinars to assist with the implementation of the IPP/IPPW model.  The current dates for these webinars are:

  • October 29 at 4:00pm EDT
  • November 2 at 9:00am EST
  • November 5 at 7:00pm EST
  • November 10 at 4:00pm EST
  • November 13 at 9:00am EST
  • November 16 at 1:00pm EST
  • November 18 at 7:00pm EST
  • November 20 at 1:00pm EST
  • November 24 at 9:00am EST
  • November 30 at 4:00pm EST
