WHERE CAN I SHIP SUPPLIES TO FERGUSON?,

puravidaparatodas:

i have a bunch of stuff that i want to send to protesters in ferguson, but i can’t seem to find a specific address to send them to. what i have is a collection of clean up and rain related supplies (gloves, trash bags, ponchos, and umbrellas). is there anyone in ferguson who can receive these? or anybody who knows anybody who can receive these?

if you don’t have an answer for me, please please please reblog! i want to ship this stuff ASAP!

okay so i’ve done a bit of research and i found out that the greater st mark’s family church has been involved in the protests and also hosted a press conference with rev. al sharpton and the mo attorney general. it seems like a good place to send these supplies, but i’m not sure.

PEOPLE IN FERGUSON— would this be a good place to send supplies to? please please please let me know i want to get this stuff sent asap!!

Please consider this photoset my fervent apology for allowing this post come out of the queue without my intended commentary about the 1997 Cinderella film starring Brandy, Whitney Houston, Jason Alexander, Whoopi Goldberg, Paolo Montalban, Bernadette Peters and many more. You can watch the trailer at IMDB, or just buy the DVD for ten bucks on Amazon. I may or may not remember being utterly captivated by this when it came out on TV, being far too old to watch fairy tale movies by then. ;)

literally the only good cinderella ever. rip whitney.

dear tumblrworld,

over the past few days, ferguson, mo has become a hotbed of injustice and inequality on all kinds of levels. due to grad school/work commitments, i can’t physically go to ferguson, but i desperately want to do something. so these are my questions for you:

for those of you who are in ferguson, how can i support you? what supplies do you need? who should i call? what can i do?

What I Need 
The $800 goal 

Would fund my transportation from NJ to St Louis, my lodging and meals while in St Louis. As well as printed materials to be distributed at rallies/protests.

The Impact
To support the development of mass self-managed organizations in the community that can address the murder of Mike Brown.

To help create a sustainable movement that can address struggles of police brutality, racial profiling,housing,transportation, pollution, welfare rights, and the issues of the day. 

Political ideas and strategies need to be informed by practical experience. This means that the political organization needs to bring together activists who are rooted in working class communities and their mass organizations and struggles. Through our active presence we can learn from others. Through our participation and organizing activity, and the influence of our ideas, we can build a social base to not only have DEMANDS MET but to CREATE REAL CHANGE.

We must defend Ferguson.

Other Ways You Can Help
Some people just can’t contribute, but that doesn’t mean they can’t help:

Ask folks to get the word out and make some noise about this campaign by using the gofundme share tools!

Thank you for your support!
