Adapting services and outreach during a disaster
Preparing organizations for disasters
Developing an emergency preparedness plan helps organizations and systems return to functioning as quickly as possible when disaster strikes. This can promote community-wide resilience and recovery and reduce the social and structural vulnerabilities that increase risks of sexual violence in disasters.
Strategies for supporting survivors
Disasters can create additional risks and barriers for people who are currently experiencing violence. They can also stir up painful memories and feelings for people who have survived abuse or other traumatic events in the past. The support of caring friends and family members can make a world of difference.
Organizing during a pandemic and beyond
Disasters can simultaneously make community organizing more urgent and more difficult. Organizers must work to meet shifting and emerging needs in their communities in the midst of limited resources and added constraints. The resources below, many of which were created during and about COVID-19, offer recommendations and lessons learned that can strengthen community organizing efforts both in and out of disasters.
