Seed is Power! Jayn de @GullahGeechee fa de Global Seed Rally!

In one of the most trying times that the world has ever seen, people from all walks of life have come together to support each other as human beings and to support the cause of dismantling racism by sharing the truth. Many of these individuals have also decided that the best way to support the BIPOC communities is via financial support so that the economic wealth gap can be closed and the BIPOC communities and families therein can be sustained. Fortunately, a number of organizations and individuals have stepped up to join and support the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition in the efforts that it has led for over two decades.
