Bristol Redistro is a small group of volunteers. We raise money and distribute it to groups in Bristol working to challenge inequality and injustice and creating positive alternatives. We’ve distributed around £40,000 to small grassroots groups, most had never received funding before.
This year we were proud to have been given the funds from the Colston 4 fundraiser that were no longer needed for the defendants’ legal support. People from our previously funded groups helped to redistribute the £15,000 to 15 Black and Brown led groups in Bristol, who were then brought together to celebrate their work and learn from each other. We have also been working on a zine about wealth inequality and created and run a workshop to guide people wanting to reflect on their privileges and take action.
The good news is that we have £10,000 in the bank so we can launch another funding round! But before we can do that we need more hands on deck. Could you spare a few hours a week over a couple of months to help with promoting the funding round, administration of applications and organisation of funding meetings? If so, please get in touch on email@example.com. It’s an amazing opportunity to learn more about what’s happening on the ground in Bristol and to meet the people behind this important and transformational work.
We hope to hear from you! In the meantime, we hope that you get what you need over the upcoming break and have a wonderful start to 2023.
