Great news! I’m glad to report that we’ve received a grant from the Annie E. Casey Foundation to help pay for the creation of Disaster Preparedness in Migrant Communities: A Manual for First Responders. We’re extremely grateful to the foundation for their generous grant of nearly $15,000.
I invite you to check out the press release that went out today. It contains more details about the manual.
I’m excited that we’re going to release the manual this month, after our community partners and allies have had a chance to offer feedback. Since it draws on LIRS’s decades of experience, we’re hopeful that Disaster Preparedness in Migrant Communities: A Manual for First Responders will help communities better meet the needs of vulnerable migrant children and families.
The Casey Foundation grant will off-set costs related to writing and editing Disaster Preparedness in Migrant Communities: A Manual for First Responders, and pay for its design, production, and distribution. Both the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS) made grants to LIRS that supported research, data collection, analysis, and creation and distribution of the manual. We’re incredibly grateful for their support.
I’ll announce the release here on this blog, so please stay tuned. When it’s out, you’ll be able to obtain a copy by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
