Take action on disaster aid!

Lutherans are advocating on Capitol Hill. Join them in taking action 

US Capitol 2019Last month, Congress failed to send a disaster aid deal to the President’s desk, delaying much-needed support for survivors and communities in desperate need of recovery funding. From wildfires and tornadoes, to hurricanes and drought, far too many low and middle-income families are still displaced from the growing number of natural disasters: living with other family members, paying expensive rents, or put at increased risk of homelessness. Globally, our warming climate is intensifying natural disasters, hunger, conflict and migration. Now that Congress has returned from Easter Recess, it is a timely moment to act. Lawmakers need to hear from you about the importance of supporting equitable disaster recovery, and the long-term need to structurally curb the costly effects of climate change.

Churches and other houses of worship are often the first to offer critical assistance for communities in the wake of disasters and are essential partners in helping foster better stewardship and resiliency in our communities. Lutherans have a deep history of responding to natural disasters and can further their impact through advocacy.
