We are raising money to support disabled people in the power outages!

Power outages are challenging for many people, but for some disabled people, they are life-threatening. Ventilators and CPAP machines enable people to breathe. Medicines require refrigeration. Many wheelchairs and other mobility devices, medical beds, lifts, and so many other critical assistive devices require power. Disabled people who were left to fend for themselves have already died. A shocking lack of support by PG&E to ensure the safety of disabled people and seniors inspired a grassroots group of disability activists and allies to take action. They are providing mutual aid and support, connecting those who need help with funding and volunteers. SDA is serving as fiscal sponsor for this all-volunteer group. Please donate, and your donation, minus a very small administrative cost, will be sent directly to people who need it. Art by Max Airborn/Fat Rose
