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