This week, a crisis in Texas

-

Our state suffered a major calamity, and is still suffering. Recovery will be long, costly, and hard for many.

At Sightlines, the unfolding disaster meant we put aside arts journalism for the past week. We’ll use our platform instead today to share a list of some of the organizations helping Texans recover that you can support.

Austin Area Urban League
The Urban League currently has an emergency fundraising campaign to help at-risk communities with the disaster.

Austin Disaster Relief Network
Donations accepted to pay for emergency housing and supplies for people impacted by weather-related incidents.

Austin Mutual Aid
Collecting monetary donations to help house and otherwise support the city’s unhoused population. Donate via Venmo at @austinmutualaid 



Black Leaders Collective Fund
The Black Leaders Collective Fund is supporting coordinated effort to provide critical emergency aid to community members impacted by recent winter storms.
