Black Resilience Fund

by Brown Hope

#BlackLivesMatter #WeDoHeal

We’ve survived a long, painful month that’s an extension of a year that’s challenged us to our core.

We need healing. We need justice. And that requires action.

Systemic change requires prolonged effort, but we can also make an immediate difference for frontline communities. I launched this Black Resilience Fund as an opportunity for non-Black allies to support the resilience of Black people in our very own community.

Since June 1st, the Black Resilience Fund has provided $704,969.81 in immediate support for Black Portlanders, including a warm meal, groceries, and unpaid bills.

You can also donate via check: write a check to BROWN HOPE and mail to P.O. Box 6807, Portland, Oregon 97228. Write BRF in the memo to designate to the Black Resilience Fund.

Our goal for July is to raise $400,000, which will empower us to provide real & tangible support to 1,000 more of our neighbors. A portion of all donations made to Brown Hope for the BRF in July will be dedicated to the Black Resilient Futures Fund, with a goal of bringing paid staff to help sustain the impact of our work.
