This is an emergency fundraiser for A Black woman and sacred community member who needs to leave her current living situation immediately in order to access a safe, comfortable and healing home.
This is a fundraiser for a Black woman, and sacred community member looking to relocate to a new home that is healing, safe and comfortable for her. She would like to be kept anonymous due to privacy/safety reasons and we will be using the pseudonym, Lana.
Lana is currently living with family, however due to some recent changes and incidents, she is no longer feeling comfortable. Lana ultimately fears that she will be forcibly evicted from where she is living, before being financially prepared. Ultimately she needs to relocate as soon as possible. Lana has been working hard for years in her field and is finally seeing it pay off, and considering this and her current living situation, it’s time for Lana to live in an environment that is conducive for her growth and healing in all aspects of her life.
This fundraiser will help her take this step and access the stability/security she deserves. Funds will be used for moving related costs, therapy sessions for the next little while, vital essentials and other living costs.
If you have access to wealth/monetary, especially if you are non-Black/non-Indigenous, distribute to this fundraiser robustly! This goal needs to ideally be hit before august 1st!

A note on transparency:
I (Harmeet) am running this fundraiser on behalf of Lana due to safety/privacy reasons. However her account details are attached for withdrawals and she has access to all the login information for this fundraiser. If there are other ways the community would like me to be transparent about this fundraiser - emails, dms and comments are open.
25 of the goal!
This means a lot. I look forward to having a home I am comfortable in again. With my income, living and saving were hard to do at the same time. It was going to take me forever and with all going on, I don’t think I could wait much longer to leave.
Also, I am starting EMDR therapy with my therapist. You guys have helped with that too!
Thank you all again,
I would like to thank everyone that has donated, every bit helps a lot. Today I have my first therapy session and I am very excited. I have been needing a therapist for quite some time and especially now.
Thank you again!
