Hurricane Harvey

Below is a list of resources we have gathered over the course of the week. Donate, donate, donate.

Hurricane Harvey has left communities in crisis, and while it is important to remember to NOT donate to The Red Cross, the best way to truly help is to send money to hyper-local, grassroots organizations and individual people affected by the devastation.

As an intersectional publication, we want to highlight how important it is to help Black, Indigenous and people of color, especially trans, intersex and genderqueer folks. Below is a list of resources we have gathered over the course of the week:

 

 

  • Help the trans community overcome Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey — “Many members of the Gulf Coast trans, intersex, and genderqueer community have lost everything. Trans, intersex, and genderqueer individuals can experience extreme difficulties in natural disaster situations. The TransAdvocate’s parent organization, the Transgender Foundation of America has organized a community disaster relief fund. The fund will assist Gulf Coast trans, intersex, and genderqueer survivors recover from this disaster.”

 

 

  • Aqui Estamos! — This South Texas-based, LGBTQIA+ led organization is is raising money to send menstrual hygiene products to people affected by Hurricane Harvey.

 

  • South Texas Human Rights Center — “The South Texas Human Rights Center is a community based organization in Falfurrias, Texas dedicated to the promotion, protection, defense and exercise of human rights and dignity in South Texas. Our mission is to end death and suffering on the Texas/Mexico border through community initiatives.” Donate here.

 

  • RAICES — Donate to the Texas-based non-profit here. They work to find housing for women and children who have been held in detention centers and released by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
