Emergency Peoples’ Relief Taking Place in OK

21 May

In case you didn’t know, a tornado touched down in Oklahoma, killing at least 51 people (20 children among them). We can’t control the weather, we can try to stop climate change before it gets worse, and we can definitely help build solidarity networks to respond to emergency situations. FEMA is too busy picking which trees to cut down in the San Francisco Bay area. Solidarity is all we have.
