Help neighbors shelter from white supremacists

CNN has reported that the armed protest by the white supremacists that are responsible for the violence at the US Capitol last week on January 6th, will be showing up in GA's state capitol from January 16th through at least January 20th.

Our unsheltered neighbors who live in the surrounding areas are at risk of being targeted by these violent white supremacist groups.  These groups have been showing up in Atlanta for weeks in large numbers. They've been disrupting our mutual aid efforts and harassing and using intimidation tactics towards local activists.  Not only is the weather going to be brutal, but our neighbors will be susceptible to attacks by groups who are known to target Black and Brown vulnerable bystanders. We've heard of the tragic and gut-wrenching stories of MAGA supporters and white supremacist groups viciously attacking black people in other cities due to their delusions and we can't stomach the idea of any more missing, beaten, or lynched people in our city. 

We are asking you to donate to our efforts to shelter them during the week of January 15-22 . Based on last weeks events, this will be a time of uncertainty and extremist violence. This is how we did our math:

Our goal is to shelter 200 neighbors in the Atlanta area

$60/night x 7-night stay at a downtown Extended Stay = $420 per person
$12/day for hot cooked meals, snacks, and food =$84 per person
$9.50 for a MARTA loaded with 3 rides
