Take Action


It’s not enough to call attention to a problem – be part of the solution. We’ve met a lot of great people and seen a lot of great things done in the more than five years since Dire States launched. Passionate advocates. Big ideas. Good work being done.

We encourage you to get involved. Use the links below to contribute to the cause.
