GIRL ILLA Tactics in collaboration with Angela Miracle Gladue aka Bgirl Lunacee are excited to create a fundraiser in action to support the work of SaveMoneySaveLife Foundation.
One way we can support long term work in local communities is by using our talents, time and resources to lift up and raise awareness for grass-roots organizations doing the ground work. SMSL is an organization that shows how this work can be done when there are Black & Indigenous voices centered in leadership and collaboration as well as gender balances in how the work is lead.
SaveMoneySaveLife is a non-profit organization located in Chicago, IL founded by Vic Mensa and lead by Executive Director Laundi Keepseagle. SMSL aims to curate accessible events and knowledge that uplifts and contributes to pushing culture and creativity further. At their core, SMSL is a creative cohort – engaging community with cross-cultural, interdisciplinary programs and resources. Their place-based and project-oriented work uses S.T.E.A.M. education to facilitate experiences that integrates contemporary cultural art, traditional knowledge, and community service.
The overall purpose of SMSL is to highlight and empower BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color). Period. Through a traditional lens, they aim to help where needed, educate and build. They recognize they are continually learning and move with humility.
Why are we doing this fundraiser?
GIRL ILLA Tactics encourages people to find local grass-roots organizations in their area to support and highlight through volunteerism, fundraising and getting more deeply connected to local organizations that have been invested in long term work. These organizations continue to anchor community lead work to to dismantle systemic oppression. We hope this fundraiser serves as a resource not only for SaveMoneySaveLife, but also as an example of how people can get involved in their own local community through service.
