Diaspora Communities Outreach - Volunteer (online/remote)

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Disaster Accountability Project

Do you have experience engaging communities online? We are seeking volunteers to organize diaspora communities across the U.S. and globally.

After disasters, diaspora communities are often the fastest and most generous to respond by sending support. Our nonprofit, Disaster Accountability Project, created an online platform/clearinghouse to curate localized "how to help" lists so donors can immediately identify and directly support local NGOs responding to disasters around the world.

Diaspora communities can help by identifying local NGOs to register, helping them share useful information, and spreading the word about this resource after disasters so people use it to make more informed decisions about how/where to help/donate.

Interested? Share a resume/cv or LinkedIn profile URL and short cover letter.

About Disaster Accountability Project

Location:

4402 Bestor Dr, Rockville, MD 20853, US

Mission Statement

Disaster Accountability Project saves lives and reduces suffering by maximizing the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of disaster preparedness, response, relief, and recovery through oversight, transparency, advocacy, and public education.

Description

DAP is the leading nonprofit organization that provides long-term independent oversight of disaster management systems.

DAP engages a dedicated community to advance policy research and advocacy, promote transparency, and encourage the public to participate in oversight, community-based organizing, and discussions about disaster preparedness and relief.

Dedicated citizen oversight is necessary to ensure resources dedicated to preparedness, relief, and recovery are effectively utilized, communities are sufficiently engaged and more resilient, and best practices and lessons learned are implemented so mistakes are not repeated.

Prior to the creation of the Disaster Accountability Project (DAP), there was no dedicated, independent oversight of the agencies and organizations responsible for these critical life-saving responsibilities.
