Recognizing BIPOC labor

Multiply marginalized BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) have an extensive history of providing communal care and moving everyone towards collective liberation. Unfortunately, this labor often goes unrecognized.

Affect created the Community Care Awards as a small way of giving thanks to community organizers and carers. To date, we’ve awarded $3000 total to local BIPOC in Oregon and Washington.
