Lowlander Center Hurricane Ida Response Fund

Please support the Lowlander Center in their response and recovery efforts in the Bayou regions of Southern Louisiana. Donations will go directly towards a sustainable, justice-centered recovery for coastal families in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida and the continuing recovery of Southwest Louisiana from Hurricanes Laura and Delta, with recovery delayed by COVID.

With a diverse network of partners, we are doing and supporting just, sustainable, green adaptations and transitions for a healthier future for the region. This will be supportive of the best decisions that people can make for themselves to secure a successful, safe future with an ever-changing coastline threatened by land loss and extreme storms. The Lowlander Center is a decade-old volunteer-centered 501c3 non-profit organization offering “ 7th generation” (long-term, continually adding, expanding) problem solving commitment.
