The Resilient Inner Sunset (RIS) Disaster Preparedness Program was launched in 2018 with support of St. Anne’s of the Sunset and the Inner Sunset NERT team. Resilient Inner Sunset has partnered with the Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) to leverage its expertise in supporting communities to implement the Empowered Communities Program (ECP). The NEN has supported Inner Sunset stakeholders in developing a Resilient Action Plan that will guide our disaster preparedness trainings and activities.
In 2018, a cohort of organizations along San Francisco’s Inner Sunset neighborhood reached out for support in creating a Resilient Action Plan (RAP) for their community. St. Anne’s of the Sunset partnered with the Neighborhood Empowerment Network (NEN) to leverage its expertise in supporting communities as they draft and implement a culturally competent RAP.
By implementing its Empowered Communities Program (ECP), the NEN will support Inner Sunset stakeholders in developing a preliminary community engagement plan. This plan will outline the need to partner with surrounding communities in order to ensure that any plans that are generated accommodate all of the stakeholders in the Inner Sunset district.
