Organizing After Disasters – Both Natural and Man-Made

Amanda Devecka-Rinear

When Superstorm Sandy hit my home in 2012, I was living and working in Washington D.C. I drove up to check on my dad a few days later, and when I saw my community devastated, part of me didn’t leave. That part of me drew me home. My heart simply would not let me walk away from the suffering that I saw. And, as we know, there are disasters of all kinds in all our communities.
