Town hall for Delaware Hurricane Ida victims is Thursday

Posted

WILMINGTON — Hurricane Ida victims who were displaced and/or whose homes were lost or damaged will have the opportunity to ask state and local officials questions at a virtual town hall Thursday at 6 p.m.

Hosted by the Delaware Poor People’s Campaign, the goal of the event is to bring together leaders concerned with the fallout from the September storm and the community they serve.

Attending groups will include the Delaware State Housing Authority, the Division of State Services, the Wilmington Housing Authority, the Wilmington Office of Emergency Management, the American Red Cross and the Metropolitan Wilmington Urban League, as well as representatives from the offices of Sen. Chris Coons and Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, both D-Del.; a representative from the Wilmington mayor’s office; and members of Wilmington City Council.

Alyssa Bradley, coordinator for the Delaware Poor People’s Campaign, said the virtual event was delayed because of connectivity issues within the affected community. But the Community Service Building in downtown Wilmington will host up to 30 people to provide reliable internet and technical assistance with navigating the Zoom call Thursday.
