Organizations We Work With
EMA has worked over the years with the following organizations. They typically have ongoing campaigns, volunteer opportunities, or community actions.
Resilient communities don't wait for disaster to strike
Become an EMA Ambassador
Resiliency is the strength of a community. It's how quick it can bounce back after stress or disasters. Resiliency is not response although it includes response. Our ambassador program will focus efforts starting in 2020 on resiliency training and artistic response. Please contact us directly if interested in becoming a community leader. CONTACT US
CONTACT US if you are an artist or community member searching for purpose or wanting to give back. We provide artist service consultation but also have affiliations with a wildlife rescue center, a biological reserve, and an environmental school in Costa Rica for volunteer (Play it FWD) opportunities.
Resilience and Regeneration
Educate yourself about appropriate response
Not all help is helpful
Here is a great article about Harvey with lessons that can be applied to other disaster situations. For instance, one suggestion is not to send "stuff" people don't need. It can create what responders sometimes call "the second disaster".
Use Social Media
It can work
If it is accessible, use it. When Harvey was going some people received responses from neighbors and rescue teams by posting messages to Facebook and Twitter. Remember 911 is only for life-threatening emergencies.
