Support Florkime to the DNC!

$1,200 of $1,200 goal

Raised by 32 people in 30 months

My name is Florkime Paye and I am a delegate to the Democratic National Convention for Minnesota's 5th congressional district.

I would love for you to be a part of this journey by donating funds to help me get to the DNC. The average cost is around 3,500 which covers flights, mandatory hotel stay, event passes and food. I am hoping to get the funds by July 1st to purchase flight tickets as soon as possible.

As a woman of color, I saw first hand the effects of income gaps for women and minority
individuals, and the challenge it creates to positively impact with the youth in these
communities. This encouraged me to explore how I can make an impact in my communities
through systems and policy change. As a Liberian American, my family heritage has also propelled me to support Bernie sanders as a presidential candidate.

As a delegate for the Democratic National Convention, I will be able to represent my
community and the work we believe in, and continue to work on this platform at the
convention and beyond.

If you are able, please consider donating to Melissa Olsen, who is also a delegate to the DNC and a CD5 delegate.

I would be forever grateful for your contribution and would love to have you support me as
represent the change that Senator Sanders stands for.

I would like to thank everyone for their donations thus far. After attending the meeting, We were assured that we could share a room which will reduce the cost. I have lowered my goal to $3,000. I am still in the process of applying for scholarships and will communicate with you all once I have updates.
