A coworker at The Evergreen State College is really excited about this organization, and she's spreading the word to get a group going. (The title of the project springboards off of a criticism of the shortcomings of wearing a safety pin to support oppressed and threatened people in the Trump era; it intends to extend more robust strategies.) It is a white "aspiring ally" resource organization spearheaded by two black women; proceeds go to one-time donation to black lady activists' projects (there's a link on the site for activists to apply for these one-time fund dispersals).

Message if you're interested, since FORRJ is no longer functional thing!
