LEarning Page Archive

This is what used to be on our Learning page, this information may not be as relevant anymore, but may still be useful. For example, the Minnesota Freedom Fund has asked people to donate elsewhere as they have reached sufficient funds to run their organisation. BUT it may still be useful for people to learn about them anyway

'What we know to be true in order to create this world is that oppressed people, especially Black people, need to build collective power in order to create systems transformation. Through the development of powerful strategic campaigns, we seek to expand the power of Black people across the Twin Cities metro area and Minnesota.'

By donating, you will support Reclaim the Block's work to make sure that our communities have the resources they need to thrive. Our grassroots group is up against the deep pockets of the Minneapolis police union, and we need your support. 

'The Minnesota Freedom Fund pays criminal bail and immigration bond for those who cannot afford to as we seek to end discriminatory, coercive, and oppressive jailing.'
