To our members, friends, and associates:
Disasters\crisis, and impacts of climate change and part of our normal routine and pattern for survival in vulnerable communities, communities of color globally.
The Black Emergency Managers Association International (BEMA) was created not only as a network of professionals in emergency management and homeland security, but created within its’ mission & vision to include communities of color, vulnerable communities to address the pressing issues of survival in your zip code. To provide awareness, education & training, mentorship, advice and recommendations, funding, and other issues for our communities.
Watch clips, trailers, or the entire documentary of ‘Cooked Survival by Zip Code’ and think of comparisons from 1995 to the current COVID-19 global crisis.
Which communities are getting the short end of the stick across the board?

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time. Life often leaves us standing bare, naked and dejected with a lost opportunity. This may well be mankind’s last chance to choose between chaos or community.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., ‘Where Are We Going From Here: Chaos or Community’.
