Stay Litt PDX

Established by Briauna Mckizzie in the summer of 2018, Stay Litt is an art and literacy collective dedicated to cultivating creativity and academic enrichment  in communities  of color. We do this work by hosting book clubs, writing workshops, readings, and live performances. The collective is made up of talented and philanthropic artists of color.

Our services are important because they enrich and empower people of color in a world where they experience significant barriers to realizing their dreams and accessing educational resources.

Your donations help the collective host  these academic events and artistic performances that employ  artists and teachers of color in a society that statistically continues to underemploy minority workers. 

By choosing to financially support us, you also enable us to offer free and sliding scale tutoring services to children of color who receive less attention and support in schools due to systemic oppression. Finally, your donations will be used to purchase the necessary registration and certification fees.

Thank you so much for being interested in our work. We appreciate your time, energy, and your emotional and financial support. We couldn’t do it without you.

Intentionally yours,

Briauna Mckizzie
