Phriends & Pham for Samir

My brother was one of the 2 African American men who were violently attacked during the Phish Festival at the Gorge. We are asking for support to pay his medical bills & legal fees.


I am Kaleema, Samir’s sister!

We are from D-town & our placentas where buried under a tree next to each other at our place of birth - so that’s how close we are! My brother lives on the opposite side of the country but we have always remained in close contact & have each other’s backs. The funds being raised will go towards medical bills & legal fees. Samir will withdraw the funds directly from GFM!
