ers in Selma needed additional assistance to make their homes safer and more resilient against future storms. Selma has played a critical role in American civil rights history, with the March from Selma to Montgomery mark- ing a turning point in the Civil Rights movement that led to the passage of the Voting Rights act in 1965. Despite its historic past, Selma has a 41.5 percent poverty rate, which is nearly triple the U.S. average of 15.1 percent. When disasters like these strike, the combination of physical hazards and socio-economic conditions make re- covery more difficult for Selma and other similar commu- nities. So, with the help of IP, Team Rubicon is continuing their work in Selma to ensure these homes are safe for families to return to and can withstand future storms. “We’ve seen again and again that low-income and mar- ginalized populations are impacted most by disasters,” said Art delaCruz, CEO of Team Rubicon. “Our approach to disaster relief is rooted in the belief that every commu- nity deserves a chance to recover. In a place like Selma, the combination of physical hazards and socio-economic risks make equitable recovery from disasters challenging.”

International Paper has special ties to Selma as their Riverdale Containerboard Mill is currently the largest em- ployer in the county with more than 750 team members. On February 24th, leaders from IP’s Riverdale Mill were able to see the work at one of the homes being repaired by Team Rubicon. Riverdale Mill volunteers will be assist- ing with planting trees from the Arbor Day Foundation. The trees International Paper is planting through their support of the Arbor Day Foundation are an important part of the community recovery process. They will help replace trees lost in the storm as well as build climate resiliency. Among many other benefits of trees, tree canopies can help lower air temperatures and improve air quality, and trees have been shown to increase property values for the home and neighborhood. “We take our responsibility as a community member and partner very seriously,” said Bretton DeJong, River- dale, Mill Manager. “Helping our neighbors in the commu- nities where we live and work is a blessing, a privilege, and a challenge we gladly accept.”
