Help Prevent Black Women From Being Evicted!

(0 votes)

Dear YGB Community,


According to YGB co-founder Brandi Grayson, there is currently a Black woman with three children who had undergone physical, mental, and emotional abuse, which forced her to go into hiding. We’re keeping her anonymous for her protection.


Although she has been able to temporarily find safe housing and employment, without your help, she could be unable to pay her rent in the coming weeks while she awaits her first paycheck.


This Black mother’s rent is $945 a month, and she also has to pay $100 a week for daycare for her children, plus a $125 enrollment fee. These are expenses that she cannot currently meet, and due to no fault of her own, she may be faced with eviction in the coming weeks.


We cannot allow this Black mother to be evicted. Please click here to donate to a GoFundMe to help her with her rent.


In addition to this woman, Brandi Grayson is also in contact with two other families in desperate need of funds, both of which have received eviction notices from their landlords.


If the GoFundMe does not reach a total of $2,600, it could result in the eviction of these women and families of color.


These families are in urgent need of relief. Please click here to donate to a GoFundMe to make sure these people don’t get evicted.


Everyone in this country deserves the right to a decent, stable home. Unfortunately, many impoverished people - specifically women of color - face eviction at absurdly high rates, depriving them of the opportunity to attain a stable financial situation and live a decent life.


Everyone in Madison should be able to live without fear of eviction, and no one should be forced to live on the streets.


It is absolutely integral that we raise as many funds as possible for these women and families of color. Please click here to give them this vital support.




In order to make any progress, we have to Build our collective understanding and Build collective analysis to advocate for better collaborative solutions.


You can help by Joining our Coalition of Supporters, or by donating here.

YGB needs your voice in order to get an investigation by the United Nations as we elevate the conversation of of racial disparities in Madison and fight for justice for Tony Robinson, the unarmed black teen murdered at the hands of officer Matt Kenny of the Madison Police Department  



YGB demands that Matt Kenny, the murderer of Tony Robinson, be fired. Far to often are killer cops left unpunished, and we want Kenny off the streets.
