Lowcountry Mutual Aid Fund
Please consider contributing to the Lowcountry Mutual Aid Fund, created to facilitate the redistribution of financial support to community members in the greater Charleston area who have been intentionally and systematically excluded from government support systems providing COVID-19 related relief. This includes: undocumented individuals, many mixed status families, and currently incarcerated folks that will not be receiving a stimulus check of their own. The fund also prioritizes communities whose existing hardships were made worse by the pandemic, including: previously incarcerated folks, single parents, unbanked and/or houseless folks, and individuals who experience housing and employment discrimination due to their identity (eg. Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), people with disabilities (apparent and non-apparent), and queer and trans folks). The fund is organized by a multi-racial and intergenerational coalition including members from the SC Housing Justice Network, Fresh Future Farm, Charleston Immigrant Coalition, Lowcountry Alliance for Model Communities, people working to support migrant farmworkers, the SC Indian Affairs Commission, #ProtectSCPrisoners, Community First Land Trust and Charleston Area Justice Ministry.
A portion of your donation will go to the Black Liberation Fund.
