As the new school year kicks-off, there will be many students in our Cleveland school districts who will lack PPE to actively engage in programming. This project is our attempt to supply the students with desperately needed face masks. Two ways to help:
(1) Contribute funds. We are looking to raise $1,000. This will help us procure 10,000 masks. (as of 8/12/20 we have raised $400)
(2) You can stitch face masks and we will come and pick these up. (As of 8/12/20, we have about 300 masks that have been collected.)
If you are interested in participating in either of these options, please contact us.
Please take a moment to sign a petition that will help us
Our goal is 2,000 signatures. (Currently, we are at 1,267 signatures; 8/12/20)
"Qualified immunity is a legal doctrine in United States federal law which shields government officials from being held personally liable for discretionary actions performed within their official capacity unless their actions violate "clearly established" federal law." This is an unjust law that makes police officers above the law. We ask Congress to pass the Ending Qualified Immunity Act and to bring justice to the people who have lost their lives over police brutality.
As we launch our outreach efforts, we can use some help. If you have skills or experiences in the following areas, please contact us: social media, video production, newsletter development, writing, photography, story telling, etc.
This event is being organized to help celebrate the colorful diversity of our Cleveland community. We will will walk, we will splash each other with colors, we will smile and we will help raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club of Cleveland.
