S.H.I.F.T. was created in Mpls, MN after the horrifying police sanctioned murder of George Floyd. Stated plainly, white supremacy perpetuates harm against Black-identifying POC. It destroys Black families, neighborhoods, opportunities, and in too many cases, results in the loss of Black lives. At S.H.I.F.T., we aim to break that cycle. We offer resources to our community, prioritizing Black, Queer, Trans, and Houseless individuals experiencing financial, emotional, and unexpected setbacks and burdens due to the pandemic. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing mutual aid and emergency relief for families living in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Occasionally we offer aid to families in other cities as well.
