Wildfires are sweeping the Northwest. Together we can make a difference through solidarity and mutual aid. As such we are once again organizing a coordinated effort to distribute supplies to effected communities.

We are also organizing housing for individuals displaced by the fires with nowhere to go. If you can provide housing please fill out our housing offer form. If you were evacuated and need temporary housing please fill out the housing request form. If you are capable of making material or donations please read on.
