Activate your love & your rage and support the efforts in Ferguson in a tangible way. Poet & educator Britteney Conner, playwright Kristiana Colón, and activist & journalist Ferrari Sheppard are organizing efforts to supply people on the ground in Ferguson with gas masks and water bottles over the coming days. The gas masks will be for children, elderly, protesters, and whoever is in need. We will be taking two separate trips. Please message privately if you’re interested in specific departure times. We intend to purchase at least 100 gas masks and water bottles and coordinate with protesters and organizers in Ferguson for peaceful and supportive distribution to those who need it most. Stand united with those whose voices are being silenced & contribute to intentional and loving resistance.
$3000 will cover gas masks, water bottles, & the cost of gas to and from Ferguson.
It has been brought to our attention that the practicality and necessity of that many gas masks might be pushing it. People on the ground that we have been in talks with and articles coming out have made a push to get food and water brought in. Currently students are not being fed because of school closings and food pantries are running empty. We still intend to purchase a few quality gas masks and other items for eye protection, but we are refocusing our energy on feeding and hydrating people of and in Ferguson. We want to use your donations as wisely as possible while still remaining transparent about our actions. Thank you.
