Safe@Home Series

About the Series

Safe@Home is a series which focuses on challenges to homeland security such as international and domestic terrorism, political violence against government officials, mass shootings and gun violence, pandemic preparedness and response, climate related emergency management, cybersecurity and response, and related issues. Based on the premise that strengthening U.S. democracy requires, in part, doing a better job of delivering security and safety at home, this series will dive deep into efforts policymakers, leaders and operators at the federal level and across the country are engaging in to protect the country, consistent with our laws and values. Safe@Home is a product of the Securing U.S. Democracy Initiative at CNAS.
