Become a Volunteer
Sustain Our Abilities runs on volunteers. We thrive when people with passion - who believe in equality, working together as a team, and providing mutual aid - come together to share knowledge and experiences related to disability and climate change. Our volunteers create local events and virtual programming, accessible around the world, to educate people with disabilities and health care professionals about topics related to climate change, climate health, and extreme weather events through the lens of disability. We are also working to educate people with and without disabilities about climate change and disasters the need to act now to sustain our abilities.
If you just want to help us in anyway that we need you to support us, please sign up here so we can call on you!
