MY STORY
I am so excited to be participating in the 2020 6th Annual VIRTUAL Disaster Dash 5K. Money raised from this event will be used to promote and support hazard and disaster mitigation for communities of color and other vulnerable populations.
 
I am a doctoral student at Texas A&M University in the Urban Development and Regional Science program. I support the Texas Freedom Colonies Project by serving as the Texas Freedom Colony Atlas Coordinator. My research interests rest at the intersection of preservation planning and community engagement for cemeteries rural Texas. Specifically, I seek to improve cemetery management for those susceptible to natural disasters and other risks that cause significant damage. Due to the historical significance of cemeteries, I wish to understand how geospatial technology can be used by community members to not only improve cemetery maintenance but also document the valuable information found in cemeteries.

The 2020 6th Annual BAF Disaster Dash will be held in concurrence with the 45th Annual Natural Hazards Research and Applications Workshop, an event with international attendance that will be hosted *virtually* July 12 - 15 by the University of Colorado Boulder Natural Hazards Center.
 
Proceeds from the event will still support the Bill Anderson Fund mission to expand the number of professionals from historically underrepresented groups in the fields of hazards and disaster research and practice. This year, your support of and participation in this event is more important than ever. Join us in July and run or walk where you are to send a clear message on the vital need for additional representation in our field.
