4. BLM Boston Giving Campaign
Sad to say we have another EMERGENCY request from a mother with two young children leaving domestic violence and from someone who violates a restraining order. We need to raise $3,875 ASAP to get her into a safe house of her own. We have found a place now that is secure, permanent housing. She needs the initial financial support.
Please give via our PAYPAL at . Thank you for your solidarity.
For longer range, recurring support join Campaign21, which moves us from emergency, crises-driven giving to solidarity sustained giving.
