In the last few weeks, SACNAS members and their families have experienced catastrophic loss and destruction from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria and the devastating earthquake in Mexico.
In the spirit of our SACNAS familia, we ask that you take action and contribute to the massive clean-up operations and support the rebuilding of these communities.
Below, find a summary of ways to get involved and/or make a donation. In addition, we are working to have a designated place at the upcoming SACNAS conference in Salt Lake City for attendees to make monetary donations.
