We don’t know how long we’ll be in this state of emergency. Keeping the lights on at AFRORACK is costly, and with all classes canceled during the COVID-19 lockdown, our organization is struggling to stay afloat. No classes means, no income. I Don’t have the funds to keep this going on by myself anymore. 

AFRORACK is the Chicago music education institution, a central hub of the city's youth modular synthesis education that's been serving the black and brown community since 2016. It's both a vital source of audio-focused STEM education in Chicago and an opportunity to inspire children of color. I’ve been keeping this afloat alone from its beginning, but Now AFRORACK needs your help.

In these challenging times, we need to band together with our friends and family. Together, we can help ensure AFRORACK stays active in Chicago so many more generations can benefit from its important mission for community and wellness.

Here’s the problem:

The coronavirus pandemic has brought the United States (and much of the world) to a halt. No classes means, no income for our organization.

How can you help?

If you want to help AFRORACK, chip in $25, $50, $100, or whatever you can.

Thanks for your consideration.
