Recent Natural Disasters: CLLAS Message of Solidarity

CLLAS would like to express its solidarity with all those suffering the effects of recent natural disasters. Our thoughts are with the people of Puerto Rico, Mexico, Houston, and elsewhere who have been so severely affected by earthquakes and hurricanes. We would like to encourage our UO community, and others, to support the recovery efforts underway in the affected areas.

We list several grassroots organizations to which people can donate. There are, of course, many other organizations that are providing relief. Our suggestions are not meant as a specific endorsement.
