Reportback on SD Indymedia’s Vegan BBQ Fundraiser for Indigenous Youth

sdindymedia

About 40 people gathered on Friday, July 17 for a vegan barbeque at the Purple House in City Heights to raise funds to send a carful of computers to Outta Your Backpack Media in Flagstaff, Arizona. Live revolutionary music by Sol Remedy and The I-Ways was interspersed with radical convos, veggie burgers and potato salad.

Outta Your Backpack Media is a collective based in Flagstaff that teaches indigenous youth the skills needed to document events occurring in their communities, such as camera techniques and video editing, and gives them a backpack filled with the essentials, including a camera and a laptop. The computers we are sending will be used to construct a video editing lab.

We collected enough funds to get the computers to OYBM. Sending love out to Sol Remedy and The I-Ways and to all who came out to the event to support!

Stay tuned for a report on the computer delivery road trip.
