The Pine Ridge Partnership is a concerted response to the severe storms and flooding that racked the Pine Ridge Reservation in 2015. SNCC leadership presented processes and potential approaches for culturally responsive green development at Pine Ridge, where an already chronic housing shortfall exists in one of the poorest US counties.
Convened by the Center for Disaster Philanthropy, the Summit brought together representatives from over 30 organizations – including local and tribal groups, The White House, FEMA, HUD, and the USDA. We discussed how to work together to bring hope and healing to those impacted by the recent disasters and how to prepare for future challenges and arrive at resilient development outcomes.
