Amid a pandemic that’s disproportionately impacting the Black community, the continued killings of Black people at the hands of police
officers, and global anti-racism protests, a Philly-area therapist is using her platform to help the local Black community take care of their
mental health right now.
In response to the deaths of Ahmad Aubrey, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd, Oshun Family Center launched a fundraiser on June 3rd,
2020 with a goal of raising $5,000. Within 24hrs we exceeded our goal and to date raised over $100k. With this initiative, we focus on the
impact of racial trauma on the Black community. It is important for allies to support our mission as healing is paramount in the upward
mobility of the Black community. We are working to continue raising funds to set our roots in Philadelphia by building the organization and contributing to economic development.
