the project

The entire world turned its collective attention for the long overdue justice of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Oluwatoyin Salau, Elijah McClain, and the countless other Black people who have lost their lives to senseless violations of civil and human rights. Now, the revolution must be sustained. Black people, activists, creators, and healers are currently pouring from empty cups. Together, we can create the opportunity to fill them.

Our goal is to raise $50,000 to package up one month of free, individualized therapy for 200+ Black people. We will use the funds to pay the BIPOC therapists who heal the community while also experiencing shared trauma.

the steps

  1. We raise $50,000k in total.
  2. Black people in need of care will sign up via Google forms stating they're interested.
  3. Easy Activism will provide the funds to cover one month of sliding-scale therapy until funds are no longer available.
  4. After the sessions are completed, the Therapist and the Client have the opportunity to continue their relationship for life.

why we're doing it

In Black communities, therapy has a high barrier of entry often due to lack of resources — all while the community is experiencing trauma at a disproportionate rate. BIPOC therapists are often being asked to work for free and we want to give back to both sides of the community, providing opportunity for both the therapists and the people who need care. 

From new allies, commitment to the movement has started to fade. Long before George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McClain, there was Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown. At the bare minimum, this project gives the opportunity for Black people to unpack years of the effects of systemic racism.

Donating to this cause is an easy form of activism you can take today.
