Rebecca Vitsmun, After the Disaster: Humanist Disaster Recovery Teams
Rebecca Vitsmun's house was destroyed by the tornado that almost killed her and her baby. When an Evangelical disaster volunteer shamed her for being an atheist mother, she was inspired to create the Humanist Disaster Recovery Teams to help those in need when disaster strikes.
Seattle Atheists and Foundation Beyond Belief are excited to welcome Rebecca Vitsmun to Town Hall.
Rebecca has taken her own personal tragedy and turned it into a positive force for good. Before her work began, nothing like the Humanist Disaster Recovery (HDR) Teams existed. She has teamed up with Foundation Beyond Belief to make her impact go even further to help people around the globe.
As the HDR Teams Development Coordinator, Rebecca is collaborating with secular groups leaders, potential volunteers, and experts in various areas of disaster recovery to develop the first national disaster recovery volunteer program for our community. She is developing the infrastructure for this program and building our national database of volunteers who are ready and willing to help out should disaster strike.
Tickets will also be available at the door. Doors open at 6:30pm; entrance on Seneca St.
