Support Victims of Racist Burglary and Vandalism in Delano, Minnesota

Donate Here

The news that a Black family newly moved into Delano, Minnesota had had their home broken into, burglarized, and covered with racist and fascist graffiti, is heartbreaking. This family is also related to one of our local members. Please consider supporting them financially if you can; if they continue in their decision to leave Delano, they will have substantial relocation costs. If they decide to stay, there will be lots of associated costs and help to support them needed, so that the family is genuinely secure.

Funds raised by this campaign will be used to alleviate cost associated with moving as the family no longer feels safe in their home. Costs include moving, closing costs of this home and their next home, insurance deductibles, and purchasing new personal items that were damaged by the vandalism. Although the family had just moved into their dream home in December, the buyer was kind enough to agree to purchase the home back from the homeowners. We hope the funds are raised before April 1st as the family is slated to move into their new home at the beginning of April.

Please help to support this family in their time of need so they are able to move into a safer home and move forward with their lives.

The Twin Cities General Defense Committee (GDC) of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) is a multi-racial and multi-generational group chartered in 2011 for two major purposes: To continue to carry out the existing mission of the GDC: prisoner and legal support; To expand the notion of ‘defense’ to the ‘defense of the entire class,’ and thus organizing and acting directly against oppression in our community. We often partially express this in our goal and and demand for us to build Community Self Defense.
