"Building Community Among Strangers: Challenges of Resettlement in Honduras"   

"What makes post-disaster development different from other types of community development is not only the tragedy of the situation but also how the disaster event can open minds to new possibilities." -Dr. Alaniz



Dr. Ryan Alaniz will be giving a talk on his work in Honduras post-hurricane Mitch. 

Ryan is a professor of Sociology at Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, CA. He specializes in post-disaster recovery and community development.
