The Okra Project

The Okra Project is an organization that supports Black Trans people by paying Black Trans chefs to cook healthy and culturally specific home-cooked meals in the homes of Black Trans people as well as deliver food to those experiencing homelessness. The Okra Project was founded by Ianne Fields Stewart, a Black queer nonbinary transfeminine NYC based actor and activist. Click HERE to learn more about the Okra Project and how to donate.

Donate to Your Local Organizations

There are many organizations around the country that support Black lives. I chose to donate to The Loveland Foundation. Based in NYC and founded in 2018 by Rachel Cargle, the Loveland Foundation aims to support communities of color and specifically Black women and girls. They have a Therapy Fund that has a goal to give 1,000 women and girls the finances to access 4-8 therapy sessions this year. Click HERE to learn more about the Loveland Foundation and donate.
