October is “Domestic Violence Awareness Month,” but while the month comes to a close, the important work to end domestic violence in our communities persists. Millions of people from all backgrounds are affected by domestic violence everyday. At all levels, in every family and partnership, in every instance; domestic violence breaks apart our communities.

As the sky around us darkens and historic wildfires rage across our beloved PNW community, we at Impact NW are watching and weeping over the ongoing destruction and heightened feelings of helplessness, confusion and fear. Here at Impact NW we are taking this moment to check in with our colleagues, our neighbors, and the vulnerable community members we serve.

For over 50 years, Impact NW has united our community across all identities, ages and backgrounds. And within our own organization we do the same through active participation in committees and support groups. In ongoing support of our Black community during this important moment and in recognition of Pride, our LGBTQ2SIA+ committee has this message (and invitation) to share:

It takes a community to Prevent Homelessness. We’ve known this from the earliest days of Impact NW as we sat around that kitchen table in the Buckman Neighborhood and sought to unite our community in the fight against poverty and homelessness. And now today, as our community endures the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the power of a united community is shining brighter than ever.

This list was created in response to the recent events and unfolding situations within our country surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement. As an organization that works with many bipoc (Black, Indigenous People of color), it is important that we recognize and understand the current movement, and where we can start the process within ourselves.
