Forwarding from one of my favorite organizations:

"Dolores' Market was created in honor of my family's late titi who passed away from Covid-19. She was an incredible soul who was selfless, enjoyed music, crafting, and cooking. To honor her memory a portion of all vendor's fees will be used to create a scholarship award for 1 BIPOC student. More information to come!"

The community health center I work at is offering free online workshops on things like yoga, breathing techniques, strength training, and more:

Movie viewing about police raids 

“Raided” is a two-part documentary film project... Using the largest gang no-knock raid in New York City’s history as a starting point, the two-part series mixes personal stories with analysis to examine the consequences of “precision policing” in the United States.

Join May Day Space for an exclusive showing of Part Two, followed by a brief Q&A.

re: For those with cash to spare 

Third Root Community Health Center is another lovely organization that could use your help during this time. They're also a collective, and they try to keep care affordable for poor folks, while centering trans, queer, and POC leadership.

For those with cash to spare

COVID-19 - reactions to facemasks 

Fun fact: If you and your partner walk through the park wearing masks in a town that's become a hotspot for a deadly global pandemic, the 98% of parkgoers not wearing masks will look at you with dread and scorn for not wallowing in denial like the rest of them.

Some folks in NYC put together this lovely website about rent strikes. If you're in the area, now's a good time to get involved!

Putting out the call for the Central Brooklyn Food Cooperative fundraiser again. I just attended a trivia night with them yesterday, and it was amazing to learn about the lineage of black-owned cooperative spaces in the city over the decades. Hopefully this can be an addition to that legacy!

kickstarter.com/projects/cbfoo

Central Brooklyn Food Coop is finally happening! Help them get started with this Kickstarter 🙂
kickstarter.com/projects/cbfoo

They're by and for a mostly black community, and are going to be working to improve the links between regional farms and the city. Big ambitions for a food coop, and a welcome alternative to the often-less-revolutionary Park Slope Food Coop.
