The Story

On Friday night, Portland witnessed a horrific attack that left two men dead and another victim wounded. These men died defending two girls who could have been victims of a hate crime.

The girls, 16 and 17-years-old, are suffering immense trauma in the aftermath of this tragedy. Although they survived, their lives will never be the same as they were being the targets of hate. In order to help them heal from this traumatic event we are raising funds to help girls to move on and feel safe in the future.

The funds will go toward basic necessities like meals and transportation, as they feel unsafe to ride public transportation after their experience. Most importantly, funds will go toward mental health services to ensure their mental and emotional welfare.

This city is in pain, and so are all of the victims of this tragedy. Our hearts go out to the heroes who gave their lives to save two strangers who could have lost theirs.
