We have many People of the Global Majority (POGM, or People of Color) offering free support to other POGM for processing grief, trauma, and developing economics, leadership, and wellbeing. These programs can only exist through sponsorships.
We really value the fact that Holistic Resistance tries really hard to not charge POC for receiving this kind of support. We are particularly inviting white folks who have benefitted from their work with Holistic Resistance to contribute.
It’s a part of our reparations and lowering the emotional calorie burn by having POC not pay for this kind of support. These contributions will be critical for getting these folks that support they need. If you’ve been in a program with one of us you know how intimate and supportive this work can be. We invite you to notice ways that your life has shifted from a one-on-one program with us.
Any amount is welcome. You can donate one-time, or if you’re able, we really appreciate you submitting at least a 4-month subscription to cover the same amount monthly for the duration of a support program.
Please don't post on Facebook - but DO send people personal messages - to preserve dignity of BIPOC folx, and it also helps to be sincere, and generally results in more fundraising. Thank you for spreading the word!
If you can’t pay, no worries! Please send this on to trusted individuals.
Ongoing support is particularly meaningful. Thank you!
POC SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
PROFILES: WHO YOU ARE SUPPORTING
POC who do anti-racism work at many different intersections, including sexism, transphobia, fatphobia, and many others, who need support on the emotional toll this work takes, skillbuilding, and navigating the white organizations they are doing this work in
POC who have had the police called on them by bystanders
POC surviving emotional and sexual abuse by white organizations and are seeking repair and healing
POC Activist mothers
WHAT WE NEED:
We have 3-5 POGM offering 2-10 support calls a week for fellow POGM. We believe in paying people for the immensity of this labor and are hoping to pay $100/hour for each call.
We have capacity for more support calls and are hoping to be able to support 20 POC a week if we have funding for it.
If you would like to give beyond 4 months, THANK YOU! There definitely will be People of Color reaching out for support during these programs and after these programs are complete.
ENROLL IN A SUBSCRIPTION:
Enroll in a subscription to contribute monthly. Cancel anytime.
If every white person who has had a one-on-one program with a Holistic Resistance Facilitator is able to give $40/month, a small fraction of what they have paid for their own program, this would cover the expenses of these 8 programs for people of color!
