The Klamath-Siskiyou Action Fund supports social and environmental justice organizing throughout Southern Oregon and Northern California. We offers small grants to groups and projects that have difficulty accessing mainstream sources of funding.
Projects we’ve supported include a sliding scale herbal clinic (In This Together); bilingual storytelling events (Noche de Cuentos/A night of stories); an infoshop in rural Oregon (Sugarloaf Center); an artist space for womxn* of color (ALAS Collective); prisoner support during COVID (Siskiyou Abolition Project); free art workshops for BIPOC community (ScenicG); multiple community garden projects; and more!
To you a fuller sense of the Klamath-Siskiyou Action Grant, we highlight a couple projects we’ve supported below.
The Edison Chiloquin Trust Land
In 2020, we supported the Edison Chiloquin Trust Land to rebuild an earth lodge for ceremonial purposes, and to repair their traditional kitchen. The Edison Chiloquin Trust Land oversees 580 acres of ancestral land, which serves as a sacred site for the cultural revitalization. The village site is used for cultural revitalization for tribal community members – sharpening the cultural identify for folks who are recovering from alcohol and drugs, returning from incarceration, or wanting to connect to the land.
Stabbin Wagon MFR
In 2020, we also supported the Stabbin Wagon MFR, a mobile harm reduction unit in Medford, Oregon. The Stabbin Wagon MFR provides free safer sex supplies, syringe exchange and disposal, basic first aid supplies, and overdose prevention supplies such as Narcan & fentanyl test strips. The Stabbin Wagon MFR is a life-saving project, run as grassroots mutual aid!
Let’s keep it going!
