I am raising funds for Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color families impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. M y name is Ethan, and I live in Lexington, KY. I do this work under the guidance of Creighton Leigh, a social justice by social media icon. All of your money goes DIRECTLY to the people who are most impacted by this pandemic. When Creighton withdraws funds, she uses them to purchase food delivery orders for vulnerable BIPOC families. Creating Voix Noire, Creighton funds directly impacted folks via reparations. Creighton organizes those directly impacted by hunger AND helps them engage in improving their communities. Food insecurity disproportionately affects marginalized communites. One in seven Americans go to bed hungry at night. Identity impacts access to food and money; people of color are disproportionately affected by hunger. 22.5% of Black households and 18.5% of Latinx/Hispanic households experienced food insecurity in 2018. Additionally, 29% of sufferers of food insecurity are queer people. While politicians have yet to meaningfully address hunger (somehow it is not a campaign issue). The best way to address hunger is to feed people. When people are fed, they are more able to engage politically. Creighton Leigh feeds both bodies and minds by partnering with donors, grocery stores and Full Cart.
