hey okay so im gonna make a post about this to help boost my chances of actually making this happen.
im a black nonbinary lesbian trying to escape an extremely white and dangerous (for me) area of the country.
i've been living in severe poverty and not able to find jobs or stable housing for YEARS until I recieved a supportive housing grant, and even with housing i have still not been able to secure a job for over a year. the city i live in also has some of the highest housing costs and homeless populations in the entire country. if you dont know about the racism in Portland, Oregon then i humbly suggest you look into it, including how black exclusionary laws existed in this state until the 1920's. i have (white) family older than that.
also, with protests all over the country and a rise in governments cracking down on anyone labelled an anti fascist, or friends with people who were, people close to me have been targeted by violent fascists and frankly i dont want any part of that shit. my childhood neighborhoods have been gentrified and now the places where i grew up are being targeted by fascists and the KKK.
i need to leave this city so that i can thrive. im trying to raise $1,800 to cover gas and for an apartment in the place i want to go. its so much because i have a big puppy who's only gonna get bigger and i need to plan for pet rent/deposits. i'm also going to be doing doordash and am still applying for jobs like mad but i really need help raising this. please reblog & boost !! here's me n the pup
