Hip Hop Family and Friends,
Today is the 12th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. We remember those who lost their lives during the storm and recognize the resiliency of our communities in the Gulf Region. This anniversary is also a moment of solidarity, as millions of our fellow brothers and sisters are currently being impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
That is why Hip Hop Caucus is asking you to help.
Our most vulnerable communities – low-income, seniors, disabled, and communities of color – are being hardest hit. Recovery from this this unprecedented storm is going to take an unprecedented amount of support from all of us.
Here is how you can help now:
SHELTER: Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County coordinates the city’s response to homelessness and has been providing updated information on shelters for people displaced by the storm. CLICK HERE TO DONATE
- To support frontline communities recovering from Harvey, please visit: #AJustHarveyRecovery
- Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services (TEJAS) is a Houston area organization that will be supporting recovery efforts in neighborhoods around Houston’s oil industry. CLICK HERE TO DONATE
- Texas Organizing Project is an alliance of organizations that will be advocating directly for people impacted hardest by the storm. CLICK HERE TO DONATE
For more ideas on where to donate, please visit Charity Navigator’s Hurricane Harvey webpage.
We need to help our brothers and sisters in the Gulf get through this historic event, just as the City of Houston did by taking in over 100,000 people impacted by Hurricane Katrina 12 years ago. In that same spirit, let us act today for those impacted by Hurricane Harvey.
Thank you for your support.
