E534 – The Black Resilience Fund, with Cameron Whitten



We’re joined by Cameron Whitten, notable for many admirable projects and involvements, cofounder of the Black Resilience Fund, a direct financial assistance program spurred into existence by awareness of the ongoing needs of black Portlanders in these unusual times.  Cameron shares their experiences in life that led them to the point of being able to recognize these needs, and some ideas of what working towards a better world might look like.  We recommend that everyone who is able to donate do so!

Thanks to our nationally recognized “top beer bar in Oregon” beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers, now open for more than 4,000 days consecutively. They have a patio outside the place and, if you’re lucky, you might be able to catch some sports with sound.  The big stick remains indoor on the ceiling.  And, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changin’ the minds of pretenders
While chasin’ the clouds away
