As Harvey sits over Texas, the destruction of local Southeast Texas communities continues. We in the Houston chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America are organizing aid efforts for those affected by the storm. With severe initial damage in the region around Rockport and Corpus Christi, Harvey is stalling over Southeast Texas and will bring flooding rains over the next few days to the whole region. This will extend and exacerbate the disaster.
We are asking for your support in this effort. We will be purchasing supplies, such as water, food, and tarps, of which we will deliver to those in need. We are contacting local, on-the-ground organizations and plugging into their efforts, as well. If you wish to donate money, click this link.
If you or a loved one are in the Texas region and would like aid OR would like to help, please fill out this form. All immediate emergencies should be directed towards local emergency services.
Please share this with those willing to help or those in need of help, especially for those who are undocumented and face a threat when interacting with governmental organizations.
If you represent an organization and wish to get in contact with us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us via @HoustonDSA on Facebook or Twitter.
All funds remaining from this effort will be donated to local, on-the-ground organizations.
