Rebecca Vitsmun: Humanist Disaster Recovery Teams

Seattle Atheists and Foundation Beyond Belief welcomes Rebecca Vitsmun on May 26th at Town Hall Seattle.  The talk will start at 7:00pm.

Many remember Rebecca Vitsmun coming out of her atheist closet on live national television after saving her and her son’s lives from a tornado that destroyed their home. Shortly after, while standing in the rubble of her families home and being proselytized to by volunteers, Rebecca made the decision to find a humanist disaster recovery team to become involved with, only to discover none existed. She has teamed up with Foundation Beyond Belief to use her award-winning background in volunteer coordination to develop the Humanist Disaster Recovery Teams program for Foundation Beyond Belief.

As the Humanist Disaster Recovery 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.
