About this Event
2032 14th Street Boulder, CO 80302
Join the Colorado School of Public Health and KUNC (NPR for Northern Colorado) for 1A Remaking America, a series looking at how our democracy - and our government - is working for us. As our world heats up, wildfires in the west are increasing in size and intensity. How prepared is Colorado to prevent and recover from the next big fire? Join 1A host Jenn White for a live conversation at the Boulder Theatre.
Jenn White will be joined by three panelists:
Rep. Joe Neguse
Democratic Congressman Joe Neguse has represented Colorado’s 2nd District in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2018. He serves as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, the House Natural Resources Committee, and the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. Rep. Neguse and his wife Andrea live in Lafayette.
Dr. Katie Dickinson, PhD
Dickinson is an Assistant Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health at the Colorado School of Public Health. Her research examines human behaviors and decision-making in the face of environmental risks, and she has studied wildfire mitigation behavior in the ‘wildland-urban interface.’ She’s currently helping to lead the Marshall Fire Unified Survey Research Team to learn more from residents about how to better respond to disasters like the Marshall Fire. Her family lives in Louisville, where her husband is a city council member.
Rod has been working in natural resource management for over 30 years. He is currently employed by Precisely, where he provides wildfire modeling and analysis. He’s also on the frontlines of firefighting as a member of local, state, and national incident management teams. In 2010, Moraga lost his home to the Fourmile Canyon Fire.
