BlackPDX.com, Don't Shoot PDX, PDX Protest Bail Fund

Yesterday we shared three national organizations working to fight entrenched racism in America. Today, we've donated to three Portland groups working to support protestors, systemic change, and our local Black community. Follow the links to learn more and, if you can, donate.

BlackPDX.com

"BlackPDX.com is a virtual community hub created to amplify the VOICES and MESSAGE of the black community in the greater Portland metro area, ultimately to improve economic conditions for black families. We provide assistance to business owners, non-profits, creatives and other organizations to increase their REACH and provide unique and needed opportunities for community connection." The site features: "Business listings, community calendar, and other resources for and by Black people in the greater Portland metro area."

Don't Shoot PDX

"Our organizational work and activism, including direct community education workshops, support the outreach of our continued advocacy as first respondents and has helped community members contribute through direct engagement and legislative value."

PDX Protest Bail Fund

"The General Defense Committee Local 1 in Portland, Oregon, has established a fundraiser to cover bail and other legal expenses for protesters arrested in Portland, Oregon in connection to protests against George Floyd's murder by Minneapolis police, along with general police brutality. At last count, more than 14 protestors were arrested. We expect that number to rise β€” processing appears to be unusually slow at the Multnomah County Justice Center."


Black Lives Matter. We stand today and every day with our Black friends, neighbors, and family members. We are and always have been committed to taking affirmative steps to support those who are not in the majority.

As an LYS, we focused on creating a safe, anti-racist space via in-person interactions. Now, as an online-only business, our opportunity to share our beliefs and work to create an anti-racist space is also largely online.

We welcome you to read our Diversity and Inclusivity Statement and contact us.
