By Rohan Ahuja
The category 5 hurricane, Maria, slashed through the island of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, leaving millions of people devastated without electricity, running water, gas, and even food. The US government has been appallingly slow at providing relief, so it is our duty as fellow Americans to help aid civilians who have been the victim of a terrible natural disaster. Below, Alt Philanthropy has compiled a list of reliable charities that will help provide Puerto Rico with the money they need to rebuild their homes, schools, hospitals, and communities as a whole.

Last Tuesday morning Donald Trump’s Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, announced that the Obama era DACA program would be suspended. Almost immediately masses of immigration activist rallied around the 800,000 young adults and children whose livelihoods are being threatened by Donald Trump’s reckless and cruel actions. While thousands of people across the country rallied together to protect the rights of these individuals, Donald Trump left the eradication of this program up to Congress. With Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan both understandably apprehensive about the consequences of ending this program, many have begun to ask who exactly will pass this through Congress. Faced with a moral dilemma of epic proportions, high profile Republicans and Democrats have already called for swift action against this cruel and inhumane decision.
