The December 6th, 2019 episode of Disability Rap features guest host Amee Medeiros (Neighborhood Center of the Arts) and special guests Erin Noel (Sierra Foothills Village), Michelle (local artist), and Spencer (local artist). The discussion is focused on Listos California, a program initiated by Governor Newsom and state lawmakers whom “invested $50 million through urgency legislation (AB 72) to establish the California for All Emergency Preparedness Campaign. The campaign aims to boost disaster preparedness among our diverse and vulnerable Californians by connecting them to culturally and linguistically competent support through a grass-roots, people-centered approach. To ensure success, the campaign empowers and engages local communities on emergency preparedness to support California’s diverse and vulnerable populations, which can be described by social vulnerability factors including social isolation, poverty, language barriers, and other access and functional needs challenges.
