These fundraising partnerships were established in conjunction with This Tender, Fragile Thing in honor of The Black Panther Party’s legacy of community-based social service work. The Party’s “service to the people” and Survival Programs worked at the local level to provide aid such as free food programs, medical care, educational resources, voter registration drives, and legal support meant to develop positive institutions within communities to help individuals meet their needs as an essential part of the fight for liberation and self-determination.
