Join the Pacific Tsunami Museum for our 30th Anniversary Tsunami Talk Series, where we will commemorate three decades of educating and raising awareness about tsunami preparedness and resilience here at the Pacific Tsunami Museum.

Dr. Alison Thompson, a dedicated humanitarian, has received prestigious awards such as the Dr. Martin Luther King Humanitarian Award and the “Woman of Peace” award. She served as a first responder during the 9/11 attacks in NYC and founded the non-profit Third Wave Volunteers (TWV), which has grown into a global network of over 30,000 volunteers. Following the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, she co-founded a Community Tsunami Early-warning disaster Center and a children’s learning museum in Sri Lanka. Alison has worked with diverse communities worldwide, from indigenous tribes in Colombia to victims of wildfires in Maui. She will be giving a presentation at the Pacific Tsunami Museum on April 11th, with limited seating available.
