Rage and Red Vests: A Hurricane Harvey Story

Hurricane Harvey pummeled the Gulf Coast and devastated Houston neighborhoods in late August 2017, leaving thousands of families displaced and tragic deaths in its wake. Although the men and women of the American Red Cross were there from the beginning–working with local partners to provide services including 435,000 overnight shelter stays and 4.5 million meals and snacks—the organization faced considerable challenges in the court of public opinion. Was it fair? Did it matter? What is the Red Cross doing today to help our city recover from one of the greatest natural disasters in history? MaryJane Mudd, former Communications Officer for the American Red Cross of the Texas Gulf Coast, led local Disaster Public Affairs during Hurricane Harvey, working closely with the national office and alongside a team of communications experts from around the country. During this keynote, she will share her own story of Houston’s resilience in the face of crisis and lessons learned in reputation management.
