Today’s Action: Take action to help Kentucky flood victims!

Unprecedented flooding has taken at least 37 lives in eastern Kentucky since last Wednesday night, with hundreds more people still unaccounted for. By the end of this tragedy, thousands of families will have been displaced and their hometowns will never be the same. Some areas already walloped by last week’s storms are now flooding again. Gov. Andy Beshear warned that most of the survivors could “lose just about everything.” After hundreds of rescue missions, countless more remain. 

For us here at OD Action, this destruction is personal. Kentucky is our home base. It’s a region that is already disenfranchised, exploited, and bereft of proper support from negligent Republican legislators and corporate predators. Our friends and neighbors are without food, water, and shelter. Many of these people have no idea what their homes now look like, or if they even have homes at all. With more climate disasters surely on the way, the people of eastern Kentucky need our help to bounce back from this horrible tragedy as quickly as possible.

Make a donation to Gov. Beshear’s Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund or check out this verified Amazon wish list for flood survivors! Simply sharing donation links with your friends and family could make a huge impact.You can find even more ways to help here. Please pitch in however you can — it all makes a difference!
