SFPoC experienced the same conditions people have been experiencing across the world - loved ones getting sick, losing jobs, losing housing, losing minds, and losing family members.

Despite these hardships, the SFPoC response was to rapidly transform programming to be able to continue to convene people and share knowledge about racial and social injustices while offering tools to dismantle anti-Blackness and systems of oppression.

We believe it is critical to continue our mission even though we received minimal support from grant funders. We are asking our community to support SFPoC’s mission by donating what you can toward our goal to raise $350K in 2022.

Our end of the year fundraising campaign - F.A.C.T. - challenges us to address the factual inequities that we are aware of and decide what we can do to shift these narratives. Together, we can achieve a beautiful and equitable world.

WE LOOK FORWARD
TO YOUR SUPPORT
NOVEMBER 30TH

The South Florida People of Color condemn the brutal treatment and mass deportation of Haitian migrants seeking refuge at the Texas border from the devastation of the recent earthquake, a series of hurricanes, tropical storms and a deepening political crisis following the mysterious assassination of President Jovenel Moise in July.  Due to these crises people are desperate for a safe place for their families, only to be further brutalized by U.S. Border Patrol Agents and "whipped like cattle.”

Our mission is in unison with the struggle for stability and democracy in Haiti. To people of African descent worldwide, this triggers traumatic images of Black people being lynched, trampled, killed, beaten, chased; being treated less than humans. No human being should be brutalized!

For further action, feel free to visit The Institute of the Black World/Haiti.

 

ABOUT SFPoC

South Florida People of Color (SFPoC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit racial healing organization.
Dedicated to disrupting racism and bigotry by providing creative programs for open dialogue and personal interaction across the racial, ethnic and cultural divides. These encounters break down biases and stereotypes and help participants build empathetic relationships which is the powerhouse of disrupting racism on a personal level and eventually a systemic level.

WE ARE SOUTH FLORIDA PEOPLE OF COLOR

Our organization exists to answer the perennial call for a national conversation on race. We believe that nothing will bridge the yawning and violent systemic and structural gaps that exist between White, Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPoC) communities without race conversations.
