Community Call and beyond. On Saturday, October 24, the Partnerships and Community + Structure working groups held a Community Call to report back on interviews with longtime Black organizations and CHMA partners in the neighborhood. The Education Working Group also provided some context for the neighborhood's history and demographics, and Community + Structure provided CHMA internal survey data to compare our composition to that of the neighborhood. Participants then discussed our group's location/identity in the neighborhood and within social movements, and some possible formations to help us become more accountable to longtime Black organizing in Crown Heights.
Our Fundraiser is Still Going! We’ve extended our fundraiser on ioby! While we raised a good amount of money to help get groceries to our neighbors, we haven’t reached our $125,000 goal just yet, so we’ve extended our fundraiser through January. You can donate through this page using a credit or debit card, and the donation is tax-deductible. Feel free to share on Instagram and Twitter as well!
