About Us

The Road2Resilience website, launched as part of the nation’s commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, is the digital manifestation of a very big idea: building the reflexes and instincts necessary at every level of American society to respond quickly and wisely to future crises. Road2Resilience is sponsored by the Center for National Policy, VOICES of September 11, in cooperation with the Community and Regional Resilience Institute and support from the Rockefeller Foundation. (Visit our Sponsors page for a full listing of our generous benefactors).

Drawing on the policy lessons of the past decade and the momentum generated by our partners’ founding event, the 9/11 Tenth Anniversary Summit: Remembrance, Renewal, Resilience, held on Sept. 8, 2011 in Washington, D.C., Road2Resilience aims to advance the cause of national resilience by highlighting innovative ideas in emergency management, homeland security and crisis planning. With daily recommended readings, blog posts, Twitter and Facebook feeds, Road2Resilience tracks the policy debate at every level, from the international to the individual.
