Support Claim Our Space Now


Claim Our Space Now is a NYC Based and Black-Queer and Immigrant led nonprofit organization (EIN 86-1214774). We are focused on building and mobilizing community power by making activism accessible and dismantling systems of white supremacy through our three tenets: Inform, Inspire, Speak Truth to Power. As an intersectional coalition, we act as a multimedia resource online and on-the-ground to provide aid and empower the Black community.


Since our launch in June 2020, we have created free accessible educational resources, as well as compiled a National Resource Directory that includes information and connections to Black mental healthcare, Queer safe spaces, police abolition, and a dozen other resources saving all Black lives.

We have ignited our Freedom Fighters across the country through our Claim the Vote program to register voters in vulnerable Black and brown communities, as well as saved over $100,000 for those communities by registering people for the 2020 census. We have hosted rallies, created a dozen pop-ups across the nation, and have been featured on NY1, CBS, and Playbill highlighting our campaigns and work.


  • Redistributed $100,000 in federal funding with Census initiative
  • Registered 68 community members to vote with Claim the Vote Initiative
  • Donated over 1000 coats, 4500 PPE Kits, and provided Mutual Aid Resources to NYC community in need at our Resource Pop ups

Claim Our Food Now:

In 2022, we will begin work on our major initiative Claim Our Food Now to provide consistent community care in the form of food security for NYC Caribbean immigrant families impacted by the threat of deportation. We will donate culturally specific and nutritious foods to support their immediate needs while creating sustainable community programs to educate, motivate, and unionize our neighbors to abolish ICE and prevent further harm for future generations.

Claim Our Resources Now:
In 2020, Claim Our Space Now launched our National Resource Directory (now named Claim Our Resources Now) to connect our intersectional Black community to life saving resources and safe spaces close to home. Since 2021, we have expanded beyond the digital space and onto the block where our neighbors in need are! Help us scale and reach our communities to provide direct and consistent community care with our volunteers and partners.
