Mutual aid disaster relief

The Mutual Aid Disaster Relief (MADRelief) Training Team recently visited Portland for a presentation and workshop. Currently, MADRelief is on a national capacity-building and educational tour. They will explain how natural storms turn into unnatural disasters through dangerous new forms of "disaster capitalism" and "extreme resource extraction," and train diverse affinity groups on principles of grassroots direct action humanitarian aid and crisis response, covering a wide range of topics such as “Principles of ‘Solidarity, Not Charity,’” “Using Privilege to Break Down Barriers,” “Building Power in Collaboration,” and “Overcoming Trauma Together.”

This is a recording of an event held Friday, Oct 26, 2018 at 6:30 pm at Portland State University.
