We’re going to make one more visit to the meeting last week where nonprofits heard from groups raising money after the North Bay fires. Susan Shaw of the North Bay Organizing Project realized early on that help from insurance companies and government agencies would likely bypass undocumented community members. What resulted was the UnDocuFund. Shaw began her talk last week with evidence of why the UnDocuFund is needed.
