Syracuse University Caribbean Student Association presents Disaster Preparedness in the Caribbean Tuesday, April 19, 2022 from 6pm – 8pm ET

Our youth and the diaspora have a key role in addressing all issues of our community from environmental, water & food security, financial, equity, to the impacts of climate change.

Looking forward to seeing as many BEMA International members in attendance.


As natural disasters rise globally, communities of color continue to be directly impacted. Join us in conversation with Mr. Charles D. Sharp to learn more about disaster preparedness and how the Caribbean diaspora can get involved.

There will be a Q&A session following the session where we encourage participants to ask questions and share their insights.

“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’.
