Half of funds raised will be distributed to powerful people of color-led local organizations which we are humbled to support. We encourage you to learn more about and support them: Abundant Beginnings, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, All of Us or None, Anti-Police Terror Project, Arab Resource and Organizing Center, Causa Justa:Just Cause, Community Ready Corps, Essie Justice Group, Initiate Justice, Restore Oakland, Sogorea Te' Land Trust, Stop Urban Shield, and TGI Justice Project.
