Every day, millions of people come to our platform from anywhere in the world to organize for positive change. There is no moment where this is more apparent than in times of crisis, when members of the community need us most.

Officials say Hurricane Harvey is responsible for at least 30 deaths after the storm made landfall Friday. Thousands have already taken shelter and more are likely to be displaced in the coming days. The full impact of the storm is just beginning to be known as rain continues to impair recovery efforts in Texas.

It will take years for the Gulf Coast to recover from Harvey. As a community of individuals committed to social change, we wanted to provide you a few ways to help those in need in the weeks and months to come. This is not an exhaustive list, but it’s a way to get started:

As lifesaving efforts continue throughout the Gulf Coast and into Louisiana, it becomes increasingly clear that there is a long road to recovery for Gulf Coast communities ahead. As the flood waters recede, we hope that your support for those who need you most does not.
