The Community Emergency Operations Center is a grassroots resilience network, where movement organizations, organizers, and community members become first responders after natural and man made disasters. We have built a coalition of over 100 grassroots organizations throughout the U.S. South and the Caribbean Islands. We provide training, political education, tech support and supplies to all organizations we are in partnership with. We understand that after natural disasters BIPOC Communities are not responded to, so we decided to create a model where we can respond to ourselves.
