Black Farmers Association of North Carolina
Although Black people have worked the land as both slaves and sharecroppers for generations, less than 2000 of the 50,000 farmers in North Carolina are Black–and most cannot absorb the support of the USDA. Grounded in a deep and rich history of community restoration over decades, a group of trusted and community-driven Black leaders are coming together to form the Black Farmers Association of North Carolina with a goal of improving farm ownership and regenerative farming practices by minority farmers, access to markets, and improvement of funds flow in policies like the Farm Bill to be available and to reach Black farmers. More importantly, they believe that restoring a connection to land and practices that restore the earth is an important step toward restoring health and well-being of people and planet.
God picks up the reed-flute world and blows.
Each note is a need coming through one of us, a passion, a longing pain.
Remember the lips where the wind-breath originated, and let your note be clear.
Don’t try to end it.
Be your note.
Help girls continue their education in Afghanistan
When Farzin Rahmani was fleeing religious persecution as a Baha’i from Iran, Afghanistan took him in and gave him a place. Now settled in the UK and after a life of service to communities around the world, Farzin has partnered with educators and families in Afghanistan to support thousands of girls to continue their education after the Taliban regime took hold. Through a system of virtual cluster education, with volunteers across the world paired with local tutors, this team now supports 2,600 students and 110 school staff in 8 provinces of Afghanistan–all young women hoping to be doctors, engineers, lawyers, civic leaders, reporters, architects, and more. Girls receive education in Physics, Chemistry, Math, Persian, and English.
- $110 supports a tutor, predominantly women, to be able to afford to teach and feed their own families for a month
- $1,000 supports a class of 30 students and their tutor for a year
- $15,000 supports a cluster of 400 students and 18 staff
- $80,000 will support the 2600 girls currently in the program to be sustained through 2023

Equity in Healthcare: Jentosy Project
You can help address structural racism in health care by supporting Robert Sanchez to make organ donations accessible for communities of color. Robert knows firsthand how hard it is to get a transplant–when he went into kidney failure, he couldn’t find a match. He put his desire to live out through social media–and found a match from someone who he had supported in the transition from incarceration back to life. Robert learned how the process of organ donation discriminates against people of color and how often people end up with a kidney that has a short “shelf life.”
The Jentosy Project aims to increase the match-rate of Black and Brown people with end stage renal disease with a healthy live kidney transplant. They aim to overcome the significant racial inequities in match rates, lower quality of organ transplants, and increase trust and awareness in Black and Brown communities. They create a support system for Black and Brown donors and patients by helping them learn, be better informed and prepared to navigate the process of organ donation. Read more about Robert Sanchez’s story here.
