This National Preparedness Month, it’s reassuring to know we’re implementing a new emergency preparedness model in Indian Country and empowering the tribes to respond locally at a moment’s notice when disaster strikes.
Labor Day: We hope employers will consider hiring Native Americans to foster a new generation of American labor and build a brighter future for all Americans.
The [emergency relief] supplies that PWNA sent made a huge impact. We were able to help Browning and Babb communities, and Heart Butte next. 500 individuals were served.
In addition to “disaster” events, PWNA responds to smaller emergencies that are disruptive to local communities. Over the past decade, PWNA responded to more than 55 disasters impacting Native American communities, with our aid benefiting 620,000 people.
