Advocacy During and After Disasters


Natalie Roetzel Ossenfort, Quyen Tu


On this episode, we’re going to discuss how nonprofits can support their communities in the wake of natural (and other types) of disasters. Whether it’s dealing with preparations for flooding, hurricanes, and wildfires or helping communities get back on their feet after political conflict, nonprofits can and should be ready and able to help by mobilizing volunteers, helping communities navigate government relief programs, providing financial assistance, and more.
