PDX Black Women's Feminism

$800 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 5 months
Wow, I can't believe it's almost November! 
I want to thank everyone again for supporting the PDX Black Women's Luncheon, last month.

I am revamping this campaign, as an ongoing funding source for the PDX Black Feminism group.

The purpose is to continue the work we started in September, with meetings, self-care activities, and community work.  

This will hopefully accumulate into a larger event in June 2018, which will be open to allies.

Please continue to support and/or share with networks.
If you no longer wish to stay connected to this campaign,  I believe gofundme proves an option to unsubscribe.

We are working on another meeting in December. The gathering will be a celebration of the holidays, as well as a time for reflection. There's been a lot happening, especially in politics. What does the future hold for Black Women/Non-Binary people? We will explore our next step for 2018.

In December, we would love to have Kwanzaa themed meal provided by a local Black woman caterer (check out the photo of one of her delicious meals!) 

Donations contributed to this campaign, will be used to host this event. 

Please use gofund to message me, if you want to stay connected, but not via this campaign. I will forward you PDX Black Feminism's new email address. 

Once again about me...

My name is Tonya Jones and I am the founder of Portland, Oregon's Women of Color Zine Workshops . I'm also the facilitator of PDX Black Feminism . I write a blog dedicated to media representations of Black women ("See Me" ).

Thank you again for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Tonya

Hello everyone!

It's Black History/Future Month. A time to reflect on the past contributions of Black Americans, as well as the visions/creativity/activism of the next generation.

Please continue to support the work of PDX Black Feminism. We will be hosting our monthly meeting later this month. Share this campaign w/networks or make a contribution today! The funding helps with renting space, providing refreshments, and self-care treats.

Thank you!

Well, it's been a week into the new year. How are things going so far? Did you break your resolutions yet ;)

I want to thank everyone again for supporting PDX Black Feminism. Our goal in 2018 is to create space for Black women's activism in Portland.

We decided to wait to host a meeting until this month. December was too rife with holiday obligations. The gathering will be an opportunity to decide what we want to accomplish with this group, and the steps we need to take to organize community events.

Please continue to share this campaign with friends, family, and other networks. Every little bit helps!

Sincerely, Tonya

Hello! I hope all is well. I would like to say thanks for the most recent donations. It is truly appreciated.

Tuesday, November 28th, is #GivingTuesday. It's a day dedicated to supporting organizations creating change in their communities.

Please think about sharing our campaign with networks at that time. We are always welcoming donations at anytime, as well.

Have a great rest of the week! :)

Sincerely,

Tonya
