Building BBWC infrastructure!

$11,391 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 180 people in 25 months

Our Mission is to increase equity for Black and Brown Workers through direct actions, anti-oppression trainings, mediation and community building through education. Our cooperative also works to archive the experiences of Black and Brown Workers through in-person interviews, surveys and written narrative.

We the Black and Brown Workers Cooperative (BBWC), a direct action social justice entity, have come together to combat injustices that manifest both in and out of the non-profit organizational structure and in the broader community of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. Our mission is to actively challenge, resist and dismantle, those colonialist, white supremacist and oppressive systems that impact our lives as Black and Brown workers.

Most importantly, we seek to create our own spaces where Black and Brown labor and community will define the value of their own work while setting roots in communities that establish black and brown owned enterprise and collectively run spaces. Our philosophy is rooted in decolonization practices and organizing methodologies.

As a Collective we recognize that true radical transformational work will not be funded by the government, but rather supported by community members like you. Because government funded initiatives control what organized community members and collectives can do on the ground, we have decided not to accept government money that silences our voices and stops the People’s Movement.

Accordingly, we are asking for your donations. To continue this on the ground radical movement work, we are in need of the monetary donations. We will be posting ways to donate in the near future.

We are fundraising for start-up costs:

1. Foundational documents 

2. Workspace (for meetings community forums and trainings)

3. Direct Action infrastructure (signage, leaflets, etc.)

4. Technology (website update, computer and printer)

Original goal - $10,000
Upped goal - $30,000
