CAUSES & CRISIS
Here are some causes and organizations we support...
Metro Atlanta Mutual Aid Fund
Centering the most vulnerable.
The Metro Atlanta Mutual Aid Fund was created by community members from metro-Atlanta who have witnessed the needs of their neighbors at this time of crisis. While COVID-19 is a health pandemic, it has crippled economies and interrupted markets, causing wide-spread unemployment. Our concern is not with fixing the economy but instead with meeting the needs of people left with uncertainty and disruption.
Nashville residents are trying to put their lives back together after tornadoes left our city and much of Middle Tennessee devastated. North Nashville, the last stronghold of historically Black neighborhoods in the city, was among the hardest areas hit. The Equity Alliance is providing residential relief and education efforts in North Nashville to assess the needs of residents home-by-home.

We recommend GiveDirectly as a resource that bypasses the disaster relief industrial complex. Read this article for more information.
Second Chance Georgia
The Second Chance for Georgia Campaign, led by the Georgia Justice Project (GJP), brings together a broad base of diverse stakeholders to speak with one voice about the need to expand Georgia’s expungement law to allow expungement of certain misdemeanor and felony convictions after a period of conviction free years.
