Story

It's #GivingTuesday and we are calling for you to GIVE RADICALLY to Kilomba Collective and support Black Brazilian immigrant Women and Girls in the United States.



GIVE TO SUPPORT BLACK BRAZILIAN WOMEN AND GIRLS

With your generous donations, we will be able to continue to support a diverse and multi-generational community of Black Brazilian Women and Girls. We end 2021 focusing on fundraising, so we can sustain and expand the work we have planned for the next years. Here are three programmatic efforts that require immediate financial support. Your contributions will go directly towards these initiatives:

1. Kilomba Fund: A fund organized by Black Brazilian Women to support Black Brazilian Women. This Fund guarantees that financial support gets directly to the hands of our community so that they have access to resources to support themselves, their families, and communities.

2. Professional Development Workshop Series: Online monthly community-engaged trainings held in a safe and informative space for Black Brazilian Women immigrants, providing hands-on opportunities for career development.

3. Strengthening Ancestral Connections: Portuguese Language Learning for Children of Immigrants and Professional Emotional Support to Black Brazilian Women Immigrants.


OUR HISTORY

The United States is home to the largest Brazilian community outside of Brazil. Kilomba Collective is the first organization intentionally committed to centering the perspective and realities of Black Brazilians, especially Black Women and Girls in their multiple identities.

Since 2019, we have grown to be known as a collective that is unapologetic in our commitment to gender and racial equity, access to health and education, safety, and justice for Black Latinx Women immigrants — communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

WHO WE SUPPORT

Here are some of the actions we've run and supported:

COVID-19 Emergency Fundraising Campaign benefiting Brazilian immigrants in New York and New Jersey who faced economic and emotional hardship during the first months of the Covid-19 pandemic. The fund provided over 50 families with food baskets, sessions of therapy, and Portuguese-language information about public services and job opportunities.

We partnered with the Black Coalition for Rights, Anistia Internacional Global Movement, and Oxfam Brasil in a fundraising campaign for Emergency Actions Against Hunger during the Covid-19 pandemic in Brazil, raising over R$11.000.

As part of the 2021 International Afro-Latin American and Afro-Caribbean Women’s Day, we hosted the first in-person gathering of Black Brazilian Women immigrants, and organized the groundbreaking 1st Black Brazilian Women Intellectuals International Conference, in partnership with Columbia University.
