About Give Black Washington
We are a collective of Black organizations unifying for the liberation of all Black people. Black people are multi talented and multi fabulous, and we show up at various intersections of being, including but not limited to Immigrant, Trans, Gender Non Binary and Non Conforming, faith lineages, LGBTQIA, family structures, ability, and levels of wealth or poverty.
If your organization is Black-led and in alignment with the liberation of ALL of us, please join us in this Give Black collective today by filling out this form. Please contact organizations directly if you have questions.
Why Give Black
Systemic inequities touch all sectors of society including giving. Race is one of the most reliable predictors of outcomes including life expectancy, wealth, income, academic achievement, maternal health, infant mortality and general well-being. Black led organizations are funded less often than white led organizations and have more restrictions placed on their budgets. Even though these organizations are being granted money to serve the communities that they are uniquely positioned to serve, they are not trusted to do their work. It is imperative that we apply a racial justice lens to our giving and Give Black.

Queer the Land is a collaborative project grounded in the self-determination of queer trans & 2spirit Black/indigenous/people of color (QT2BIPOC) and the vision of collectively owning our land and labor. The idea for this project comes from our collective experience: the lived experience of the housing crisis and economic displacement in Seattle. We want to build the solution ourselves as the communities most impacted by these issues. We envision Queer The Land as a rare community space where the needs of QT2BIPOC are centered, and our dreams are nurtured.
DMHS is a group for Mental Health Professionals who want to actively increase access to mental health services for BIPOC, assist BIPOC healers in obtaining and maintaining mental health licenses by navigating the bureaucracy and costs, and work to have BIPOC culturally competent diagnoses acknowledged so clients who identify as BIPOC receive appropriate treatment, diagnoses and even medication, without the interference of implicit bias.
