Not long after we watched in horror as racially charged violence erupted in Charlottesville, Virginia, our nation braced for and is now recovering from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Those hurricanes, like other severe weather events, are significant in their effect on individuals and their health. These events impact the very fabric of communities, destroying not only physical infrastructure but also disrupting the social factors that impact our health. Restoring the physical infrastructure and returning these individuals and their families to healthy communities is a major undertaking that stresses the very resilience of our society. Returning underserved individuals and their families to communities in the same state in which they left is a failure to recognize the inequities that existed before the disaster occurred and perpetuates the conditions that initially created these underserved communities.
