Hurricane Dorian has decimated the Bahamas and is wreaking destruction and spawning tornadoes up the east coast. Millions of people have been ordered to evacuate from the eastern seaboard, and there are already storm impacts and flooding in many locales between Savannah GA and Norfolk VA. In these areas are migrant farm worker camps, and both coastal Indigenous and Gullah communities.
What is DRASL?
Through Mutual Aid Disaster Relief (MADR) 9 cities have networked together as the Dorian Response Autonomous Supply Line (DRASL) and begun collection efforts to send supplies and people-aid to impacted communities left behind by state and non-profits. DRASL is structured like a spokes council and works like a bucket brigade. And more are welcome to join us!
