The Black Resilience Fund is an emergency fund dedicated to healing and resilience by providing immediate resources to Black Portlanders. They are trying to raise $1M by Juneteenth. Let’s support them in meeting their goal! ?

~~~ From the BLACK RESILIENCE FUND GoFundMe page ~~~

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.

In four days, the Black Resilience Fund has provided $48,153.81 in immediate support for Black Portlanders, including a warm meal, groceries, and unpaid bills.

Black Resilience Fund is founded by Cameron Whitten, a local Portlander who has more than 5 years of experience in nonprofit leadership and donation accountability. Cameron has served as the Executive Director of local nonprofits such as Know Your City, Brown Hope, and Q Center.

The Black Resilience Fund will become a formal program of Portland-based nonprofit Brown Hope on June 16th.

We’ve so far collected over 6,000 donations, which has provided support to 160 Black Portlanders.

Our goal is to raise $1,000,000 by Juneteenth (Freedom Day), and we will continue to increase our goal as we raise funds and identify immediate needs of Black people in our community.
