We’ve been looking for a good list of organizations that are locally based that do good work. Most of the lists we’ve seen are screenshots, which means blind readers and anyone who uses screen readers to access the internet, can’t read them. These lists also don’t include a link or the name of the person or organization who put the list together.
This list comes from Edwidge Danticat
DO NOT GIVE ANY MONEY TO THE RED CROSS. THE RED CROSS IS SIMPLY ONE MORE EXTENSION OF WESTERN IMPERIALISM AND NEOLIBERALIST NEOCOLONIALISM!!!!
“Many of you have asked for suggestions of organizations to donate to in the wake of Hurricane Matthew’s devastation in Haiti. Here are a few suggestions. These are primarily organizations that have been working in the most affected areas for years and are, for the most part, Haitian-led. A few of these organizations are schools or educational institutions. When a school–however small–has been a trusted part of a community for a long time, families will look to that place for immediate and ongoing support in rebuilding after a disaster like this. Thank you for your concern and support.”
