Spread the word to get the app launched and into the hands of the revolution!


BRING ON THE LIGHT

Help us raise $108,000 to complete and launch the first version of the Decolonize Daily mobile application and sustain it for at least six months.  The app is and will always be a free offering to all those interested in working toward social justice and collective liberation.

Here's how we will use the $108,000 over the next six months:

  • $33,000 -- Full-time person to handle operations, administration, finance & fundraising.
  • $33,000 -- Full-time person to shepherd, design and develop creative vision for the app and org.
  • $33,000 -- Full-time person to design and develop the app.
  • $3,000 -- Supporting Community Partners to craft and validate app content.
  • $3,000 -- Supporting Volunteers and Contractors to gather, edit and publish app content.
  • $1,200 -- Building community, creating partnerships and spreading the word.
  • $768 -- Assets, materials, education, software licenses.
  • $600 -- iOS and Android test devices.
  • $342 -- App infrastructure and online hosting.
  • $90 -- Conscious banking fees.

We exist to serve independent grassroots activists, organizers, artists, musicians, photographers, filmmakers, educators, entrepreneurs and the communities and causes they support in realizing a thriving decolonized vision of the future.  The app will always be completely free of charge to download, use and will be available on iOS and Android to make it as accessible as possible.  All our funds flow through Beneficial State Bank, a values-based community financial institution that is openly committed to investing in a new socially-, racially-, gender-just and green economy reliant on sustainable energy, not fossil fuels.

Thanks to our fiscal sponsors, Community Services Unlimited, your donation is tax-deductible for income, gift and estate taxes.  See more below about the effects your tax-deductible donation has and how to avoid corrupt Wells Fargo and Chase banks when making payments online.

 

STOP WAR: DIVERT YOUR TAXES

Your federal tax dollars support a corrupt regime that is endorsing and perpetuating racism, police brutality, war and environmental degradation.  The second-highest expenditure of your taxes goes to military spending.  "Of every dollar you pay in income taxes, 23 cents goes to the military—but only 5 cents goes to our troops in the form of pay, housing allowances and other benefits" (source: Yes! Magazine).  A whopping 11 cents of that 23 cents goes to corporations that contract with the military, such as Lockheed Martin.  People and planet are being killed while corporations profit.

By making a tax deductible donation, you are diverting funds from the government and into an organization that supports independent grassroots activists, organizers, artists, musicians, photographers, filmmakers, educators, entrepreneurs and the communities and causes they support in realizing a thriving decolonized vision of the future.  Thanks to our fiscal sponsors, Community Services Unlimited, your donation is tax-deductible for income, gift and estate taxes.  To calculate your tax savings on tax-exempt donations, check out Charity Navigator's Giving Calculator

 

DIVEST FROM WELLS FARGO & CHASE BANKS

We've discovered that it is unavoidable to accept online payments without the intentions and energy attached to your funds flowing through Wells Fargo or Chase banks.  These banks have been found guilty of defrauding thousands of their customers all while funding extractive pipeline projects that destroy the planet and displace Indigenous peoples.  They own much of the technical infrastructure required to process credit card payments online.  If you use our custom donation form and select the Bank Transfer Payment option to make a direct transfer from your bank account, you will incur lower fees and your payments will not be processed by Wells Fargo or Chase banks.

If you have accounts open with Wells Fargo, Chase, Bank of America or a host of other corporate banks that are destroying communities and the planet, please join major US cities and millions of others that have divested billions of dollars and move your money.  Use this guide for moving your money and, if you're on the west coast and looking for a suggestion, please consider shifting to Beneficial State Bank -- a community-based bank that is openly committed to investing in a new socially, racially, gender just and green economy reliant on sustainable energy, not fossil fuels.

HOW DOES THE APP WORK?

 

Take Informed Action

Decolonize Daily is a mobile application that gives a growing community of socially conscious and concerned individuals an informative and simple way to take action every day in alignment with social movements such as Standing Rock, Black Lives Matter and Women's March that represent generations of grassroots activism work for marginalized and oppressed communities.

We scour the Internet and work with our partners organizing social actions to send you the most effective things you can do on a daily basis to carry the movements forward in creating a more humanitarian, compassionate and peaceful society.

 

See Progress

Each of our actions are placed within the context of a social movement's past milestones, current campaigns and future goals so you can see exactly how your action impacts progress. You can also see how actions impact multiple different movements so we build common ground, shared understanding and act in the same direction, at the same time, with greater impact.

Movements and actions are updated on a daily basis and we send you notifications when there are changes related to the work you have done.

 

Keep Up

Collaboratively creating a humanitarian, peaceful society inclusive of and empowering all, especially those most marginalized, is no easy task. Battles have been waging for generations and the work necessary will continue for generations to come.

To keep spirits up, continue learning and taking action, Decolonize Daily connects you with socially conscious music to hear, films to watch and art to view.

“Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are. In case you are still wondering—no, it was not a wrong turn that brought you here. You do belong here and there is a contribution uniquely yours that is needed. Welcome and good luck.”
