California Wildfires Disaster Relief
The Federation is working closely with labor councils in the fire-affected areas to provide labor support services for our members who are suffering. We are providing help since the unions and organizations in that area are overwhelmed and direct communication is unreliable.
We have collected and are updating in real-time a list of crisis-services (not complete – any unions please send us updates on your own resources and efforts and we will add), sources of real-time information for displaced people, and places unions and members can donate directly to the labor councils to provide assistance. Here is the link to the webpage: http://calaborfed.org/california-wildfires-disaster-relief/
We are asking you to do three things:
- Please distribute this link to your members in affected areas directly through any means that you have. Post on your websites, Facebook pages, as well as emailing out.
- Please donate as much as you can to the council or to any organizations in this link.
- If you have people who are interested in volunteering, please have them email Tara Carey, from our staff, at email@example.com as we will build a list of volunteers to contact when it is safe to send them to help. People will be needed in a variety of capacities.
