Full summary with a breakdown of the agenda for each week! https://discuss.mappyhour.org/t/racial-justice-giving-circle-gc1-summer-2020/55
Everyone in the Mappy Hour community (whether or not you're signing up for the circle) is invited to submit organization's for the master list. You can do that by following this guide.
How does this Giving Circle Work?
This Giving Circle (we’ll call it Giving Circle #1 or GC1) is being formed to directly address the underlying systems that enable racial injustice in our country. It is one response to the recent murders of black Americans including George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor. Our goal is to provide a group answer that can serve both as education and action.
Here’s how this works:
- You register here with the minimum donation of $50. You can paypal firstname.lastname@example.org with anything above $50 you'd like to donate! Mappy Hour is covering all credit card fees, meaning 100% of your donation goes to the non-profit.
- You attend each of the circles meetings and contribute by spending time researching and learning about each organization, communicating what you’ve learned, and listening to others opinions
- If you are able to, you continue to support the selected non-profit long term through fiscal resources, volunteering or other capacities you have!
- We will do our best to provide a follow-up email in 6 months with updates on how the organization is doing, (if possible) how the grant is being used and how we can all continue to support the organization.
We are also looking for circle members who are willing to engage in understanding the issues and systems at play more deeply. To that end, we’ve included an ally guide for non BIPOC members on the blog page linked below. There’s no due date on these calls to action, we just ask that you start.
