2018 Hurricane Direct Support


Hurricane Michael  is the worst hurricane to hit the continental US since Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Brittany is sending funds and support to impacted folks near Panama City, Florida via CashApp and this GoFundMe to help in their immediate and long-term recovery. We will update with receipts and updates. Communication with folks in Florida is obviously not great right now, so please be patient. Thank you for your direct support!

Her CashApp handle is: $msbritt3055 Download it here: https://cash.app/  Why this app? Cash App transfers are instant. Venmo, PayPal, Facebook fundraisers, etc. can take up to a week to handle transactions.

Preparation saves lives. As the 2018 hurricane season approaches, Dancing for Justice founder Brittany Williams and the Coalition to Support Racial Justice Organizing are raising money in advance to support potentially impacted folks in high-risk areas. The money will be distributed by the Coalition team to directly impacted people before a hurricane becomes inclement to buy supplies and recover after. We know hurricanes will arrive; it's a matter of when, where, and how badly. Thanks to everyone who supported our successful Hurricane Irma Solidarity fund last year! We hope to prevent unnecessary trauma and provide care for even more communities in 2018. 

UPDATE: all funds are being sent to Black women in the Carolinas. Get more info on our Direct Support work here: https://coalitionforracialjustice.net/hurricane-florence-urgent-support-actions/

See Leslie Mac's Facebook live video about our work! If you need direct support, please go here .

FOR TRANSPARENCY: The people we care for are people in our direct networks or in a known organizer's network. Brittany is distributing ALL monies collected directly to real people, families and organizers to buy supplies ahead of the storm. The monies raised TODAY will be released first thing tomorrow morning.  We'll post receipts of transactions -- omitting person's private info -- later.)

Let's make this campaign stronger than the campaign we did last year for Hurricanes Irma and Maria! (See the results of our 2017 Direct Support YouCaring below.)
