    In the wake of a disaster, vulnerable communities stand to be affected by a variety of harms-some obvious and some not-in disproportionate ways.   While insurance or compensation schemes can at times provide remedy for some economic harm, some populations may face significant barriers in accessing these funds. In addition, there are other types of harm, such as physical injury, increased risk of illness, and the emotional turmoil stemming from displacement, that have noneconomic components not amenable to redress by traditional compensatory measures. A panel of experts will address these issues from diverse disciplines and will examine the role of community advocacy in post disaster relief.
