Disaster Resilience Collective
The Disaster Resilience Collective supports secular, humanist, and mutual aid groups in FEMA Region 1 that provide local action during all phases of the disaster process.
Disasters exacerbate inequality. Local people and groups are in the best position to act quickly, efficiently, and with cultural responsibility in the face of a weather disaster. The groups below provide locally directed action in historically underserved communities, offering preparedness, recovery, and mitigation for disasters through a climate justice lens.
Financial solidarity to the Disaster Resilience Collective will be shared evenly among the following communities:
- Blue Trunk Garden Network: Blue Trunk helps elders and other vulnerable community members prepare for predictable disasters and deploys volunteer brigades to help with rebuilding and cleanup projects. Blue Trunk also provides hot meals and distributes emergency supplies including food, pet food, and cleaning products.
- Central Florida Freethought Community: a community of atheists, humanists, freethinkers, and skeptics who believe in making the world a better place through actions.
- Central Florida Mutual Aid: a community-powered nonprofit collective organizing in Orange, Seminole, Osceola, and Lake Counties. They work to provide for the basic needs of individuals and families in these counties facing financial and disaster-related emergencies as a result of oppressive economic and social systems.
- Humanists of Tallahassee: participates in poverty alleviation efforts with the local Trinity Church. With your support, they will become a reliable source of supplies during a disaster.
- Neighborhood Fridge: a decentralized network of community fridges and pantries that are open 24/7.
- CORMII Community Development Corporation: a group in Reidsville, North Carolina, which has a year-long campaign providing essentials to those in need. They do this with a calendar of themed monthly collection/giveaway programs.
