  • Partnership With Native Americans Coronavirus Emergency Partnership With Native Americans is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to championing hope for a brighter future for Native Americans living on remote, isolated and impoverished reservations.

  • COVID-19 Mutual Aid Fund for LGBTQI and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, other People of Color) - The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the particular vulnerability of queer, transgender, non-binary and/or intersex Black, Indigenous folks and other LGBTQI+ people of color (QTIBIPOC folks). Due to our community disproportionately experiencing a lifelong arc of violence and discrimination, many of our community members are impoverished and housing unstable. Many folks in our community are self-employed or in the service economy, and living with disabilities, chronic illnesses, and/or compromised immune systems. None of the people managing this fund (and none of their household members) will receive monies from this fund.
