Save the Sunshine Ward Collective
About the collective:
“Owning this house as part of PCH is a big step to fighting the terrible systemic gentrification in this neighbourhood and a big step forward in creating strong bonds within our community. Owning this house will uphold a long standing music practice space, a space that has helped create possibilities for radical organizations in our community to hold meetings, a space that has been used to raise thousands of dollars for radical causes through fundraisers, movie nights, dance parties, shows, etc. And has been a home to low income women, queer and people of color in this neighbourhood for seven years now. As a collective we promise that all we’ve given to the community will be pushed even more if we can own this house.”
What they need:
“The Sunshine Ward Collective has decided to organize and work with Portland Housing Collective to purchase our house from our landlord. Time is crucial in regards to this so we are reaching out to fellow cooperatives and supporters for donations to reach our goal of $10,000 to put towards the down payment on our home. If you, your family, your friends, co-workers etc. can donate any amount, it would be greatly appreciated.”
