DETAILS ON THE CALENDAR – JOIN US ON OCTOBER 11TH
People think that natural disasters are “equal opportunity” catastrophes. But, in reality, disasters have a disproportionate impact on some groups such as women, the poor, children, people who are elderly, disabled, or even undocumented immigrants. Faith-based responses to disaster are essential to recovery. Some denominations excel at getting feet on the ground, supplies on site and experienced assistance to victims. Is there more we can do? Is there a way to help our faith communities respond to these other issues as well? Is that asking too much? Give us your thoughts, or simply share your relief work experiences.
