For anyone stranded as a result of the #MuslimBan:
Earlier today, IRAP was in touch with Airbnb’s Global Disaster Response & Relief team. They have offered to help provide temporary housing to individuals affected by the President’s executive order.
For those individuals who are currently at an airport in the United States or en route to the United States and are in need of temporary housing assistance (up to two weeks), please proceed by following the instructions below:
Please have the team, volunteer, or client email Brian.Chesky@airbnb.com with the nature of the request (situation, ideally info on individual and family, location needing temporary accommodation and how long, along with the contact info for person/family OR case manager/lawyer handling).
In your email, reference speaking with Kellie Bentz and Disaster Team and your email will be filtered to the top of the list.
Once they receive and make connection with the case manager or family needing assistance, Airbnb will work to make a match between the need and their hosts offering support OR provide a coupon code to identify necessary accommodations in the location of need.
Please share this information with your networks. Let us know if there is anything else we can share. We are with you during this difficult time.
