Giving flood-affected citizens a powerful voice
Flooding is America’s most common and expensive natural disaster - and our flood risk is growing. But it’s not too late for us to be proactive and do something about it. Join our community of Flood Defenders and let’s tell our elected officials that it’s time for them to do a better job protecting citizens from flooding.
Properties at Risk across the United States
in damages since 2000
For the past 25 years, America has experienced an urban flooding event once every 2-3 days
When a flood impacts your life, it wreaks havoc on your emotional and financial well-being, leaving you feeling trapped, vulnerable and exposed. Lives and routines are disrupted when you can not even leave your home or neighborhood because of standing water. We know what it’s like to feel exposed to the threat of flooding - because we’ve been there too.
Flood Defenders is a non-profit organization that brings people together to demand and receive the level of flood protection we need and deserve.
We believe that change happens when people come together to raise their collective voices. Bringing those powerful voices together isi our goal. Our team of local flooding experts have decades of experience addressing the stormwater issues that cause flooding. Most importantly, we have deep experience in political advocacy and have the tools and solutions to help you reach and influence the key decision makers in your communities.
Let’s hold our elected officials accountable for better flood protection
Together we will be heard and see real change in our communities
Flooding is a complicated problem that requires cooperation between local, state, and federal governments. It’s easy for elected officials to pass the buck to the next jurisdiction. People have complained - but they haven’t complained in one joint, loud voice. That's where we come in.
