Hurricane Michael Urgent Support Actions

 

In 2017, Coalition networks raised over $10,000 in DIRECT SUPPORT for impacted peoples effected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria before and after the storms hit. This year, as Hurricane Michael demolished the Florida panhandle, we are again supporting impacted folks directly.

Coalition member and Dancing for Justice founder Brittany Williams is, again, tirelessly organizing for Black and Brown folks in the Carolinas and now Florida. Through her direct networks, we are distributing funds and supplies directly to families in need. #BuildMaroonage

Brittany is sending funds and support to impacted folks near Panama City, Florida via CashApp and the GoFundMe to help in their immediate and long-term recovery.
