EVENTS

WEDNESDAY, MAY 18TH 9 AM – 10 AM (REMOTE)

Event Description: The panelists will discuss 805 UndocuFund’s experience raising, case-managing and distributing more than $8M in one time disaster cash assistance to more than 16,0000 undocumented Central Coast residents who were ineligible for state and federal help when afectted by COVID-19, major wildfires, and the Montecito Mudslides. They will also explore how these disasters illustrate underlying socio-economic factors and larger systemic barriers that continue to affect this community before, during, and after disasters.

SATURDAY, MAY 21TH 9 AM -2PM (IN PERSON)

Event Description: 805 UndocuFund has developed a volunteer based grassroots disaster relief model. We are partnering with the American Red Cross Central Coast Region and the Oxnard Fire Department in disaster preparedness to save lives. 40% to 50% of Oxnard residents requesting appointments to get live -saving free smoke alarms provided by the Oxnard Fire Department and installed by the American Red Cross Central Coast’s Sound the Alarm program are monolingual Spanish speakers. The most common type of disaster in the Central Coast (and the country) is home fires. We look forward to helping communicate with residents in the language they’re most comfortable with about home fire safety and prevention. Community partnerships can make a huge impact on reducing injury, death, and damage caused by home fires.
