We are heartbroken by the mass shooting in Buffalo by a white supremacist. We must dedicate ourselves to fighting racism and ridding our streets of guns. At this moment, we can support Black-led organizations in Buffalo who are working to help the families and communities most affected by this tragedy.
Here are a few groups:
- Fruit Belt Community Land Trust – a membership based organization creating a community economy, shared equity home ownership, and permanently affordable housing. Donations will provide access to fresh food, 3 months rent relief. tinyurl.com/3n56bxjc
- Black Love Resists In the Rust – a membership-based Black-led abolitionist organization. Donations will provide ongoing access to mental heath services and access to fresh food. tinyurl.com/2uwf3etx
- African Heritage Food Co-op – a community owned and operated co-op working to create community ownership of the food system, promote health and wellness, create good jobs, and a local economy that works for everyone. Donations will provide access to fresh food, community outreach. tinyurl.com/hh5ryrbp
