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.
Strengthening Ancestral Connections: Portuguese Language Learning for

the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about our work here.
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.
