BLACK LIVES MATTER

COMMUNITY CARE

I’m a Lebanese-Belgian living on stolen Indigenous Land. A lot of people in Canada still live without knowing or caring about the past & present systemic violence and racism against Black & Indigenous communities. Education, mindsets and the entire system need to change, myself included.

I strongly believe that there are no such things as personal gain. We only thrive if the entire community is lifted up.

 

Below are 3 BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) organizations my shop profits will be going to!

Please find extra resources and documentations at the bottom of the page.

 

THE OKRA PROJECT

 

The Okra Project is a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home-cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People.

TAKING WHAT WE NEED

Taking What We Need is an informal volunteer-run community group dedicated to helping trans women, trans-feminine (AMAB) and two-spirit people get what they need through discretionary funding. Their fund is open to everyone in the trans-feminine community to help cover some of the high costs related to transitioning.

MAGGIE'S

Maggie's is an organization run by and for sex workers. Their mission is to assist sex workers in their efforts to live and work with safety and dignity. Maggie's advocates that we should all have the right to choose or reject sex work, just as we have the right to choose or reject any other kinds of work.
