Learning about Disaster Collectivism
I really enjoyed learning about the different ways people came together from a crises and supported each other through trying times. Starting with the first eposide, no matter one's background they can be a force for good and supply assets and resources, such a a venue for meetings, food and activities to support people getting their lives back on track after a natural disaster such as hurricane Sandy in NYC. The way people come together post disasters and make things happen is illuminating and inspiring and this pod cast tells real stories with real people that raises attention to the unseen and untold stories of what happens in these situations. Especially the 3rd episode, where Jobs for Justice opened up pathways for undocumented people whose homes and jobs were destroyed in the California fires where Jobs for Justice riased millions of dollars, giving access to funds not available through the government for these folks - that showed the power of the people, support and disaster collectivism! Thanks for sharing these stories, looking forward to next season already!!
This show is fantastic !!
A must listen
This is a fresh and eye opening look at the some very positive and uplifting aspects of post disaster community response. I found it a very uplifting way to start my day. Excellent interviews, editing and producing!
