Take Action: Natural Disaster Relief Efforts

Posted on: June 21, 2018 Topics: activist lab, natural disaster

Over the span of about one month, a large area of the world was hammered by natural disasters, leaving behind death and devastation. The rubble is being cleared, millions are without power, and drinkable water can be hard to find.

The 2017 wildfire season is one of the most devastating ever recorded, with dozens of lives lost and tens of thousands evacuated. As of October 10, more than 115,000 acres were ablaze in nearly a dozen separate fires in Northern California. Governor Jerry Brown has declared states of emergency in Napa, Sonoma, Yuba, Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Nevada and Orange Counties.

There are no easy fixes, not fast solutions. But you can help those affected by these natural disasters recover and rebuild by supporting the efforts of the organizations listed below.
