No time to depend upon others to make the change that we want to see or lead the impact that we feel should be made. Dependence on capitalist structures to regulate when and how much we give is unreliable.

Some people/orgs appreciate monetary donations as a way to be compensated for a skill without further distancing community from the resource, while others may not need monetary donations as much as community support in order to outsource organizing tasks, to spread the word and to volunteer. It is always nice to ask or pay attention to the kind of donation that is most requested.

Discussion: How to Donate Effectively, Eliminate the Third Party, Find Books for Vegans of Color and Reject Celebrity Activism

No time to depend upon others to make the change that we want to see or lead the impact that we feel should be made. Dependence on capitalist structures to regulate when and how much we give is unreliable.

When buying these books that elevate Black/Brown vegans of color, be sure to buy from the publisher so as to directly compensate those who contributed to this resource.


Forward Item

Attempt to go directly to the source.

Be a bridge; not a third party. 

Fuel the People hosted a community resource called Pop-Up Market.

This pop-up market began as a vegan food and product distribution that has now evolved into a refreshing community space for folx to stock up on essentials, food items and clothing  while enjoying the company of others over music and a warm meal.

Feel free to donate resources (clothes or dry food) or time via our volunteer opportunities, that will directly benefit Black/Brown QTPoC people and youth,
