|Help Houston, Texas rebuild after the devastation from Hurricane Harvey.
The destruction wrought by Hurricane Harvey is devastating.
Among the countless communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey, Houston, America’s fourth largest city, has seen some of the worst conditions. The lives and homes destroyed in this historic storm’s path are another sobering reminder of climate change’s catastrophic consequences.
Losing your loved ones or your home is an unimaginable tragedy, but this is reality for many Texans affected by Harvey. We must step in and do what we can.
The Hurricane Harvey Community Relief Fund will aid the most vulnerable communities impacted in Houston as they rebuild from the hurricane. Through the fund, health care, housing, and immigration services will be provided to Houstonians in need.
Natural disasters hit the most marginalized communities the hardest, and it often takes those communities the longest to get back on their feet. In Houston alone, a quarter of all residents live in poverty and an estimated 575,000 people are undocumented immigrants.
For these communities, the ability to evacuate during disasters or buy flood insurance is a privilege that many are unable to afford. The relief fund aims to address these inequities as Houston’s vulnerable communities begin to rebuild.
Together, we can show our support for the people of Houston.
