The 2018 Camp Fire has woven our fates together, inevitably--not only with our neighbors but with the planet itself. We are keenly aware of the values that emerged from the Urban Design Associates process, which prioritized nature, community, and rebuilding “green”–in an environmentally conscious and fire-wise way. We see the pressing need for coordinating and supporting the many rebuild projects that share these community values, to share resources, energy, and emotional support among those of us who have lost everything but hope.
WHAT WE DO
Strategic Planning Assistance: Support rebuild projects by offering knowledge, ideas, and shared resources.
Facilitating quarterly day-long gatherings of Ridge community actors and activists to facilitate the rebuilding in coordinated way.
Grant-writing, fundraising assistance, public relations, networking, and communication.
Highlight rebuilding efforts to draw in participation and resources.
