BENEFITING: FUSION PARTNERSHIPS INC
The Center for the Mixed Voice is an emerging non-profit partner of Fusion Partnerships, Inc. We are committed to serving the mixed race/multiple-heritage community. Located in the heart of the Charles Village neighborhood of Baltimore, the center provides support and resources for mixed individuals, families, and their advocates, including a lending library, workshops, community forums, community oral history projects and referrals to culturally-competent licensed therapeutic services.
We are launching our inaugural MVP crowd-funding effort in conjunction with the November 18th 2016, Baltimore opening of the film, Loving at the Charles Theatre. Loving (http://www.focusfeatures.com/loving) is a film about Mildred and Richard Loving and the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia, which struck down all state laws banning interracial marriage remaining in sixteen U.S. States at that time. We will have a table in the lobby at the Charles so stop by and say hello!
We hope you will join us in our quest to raise $1,500.00 for the Mixed Voice Project (MVP). The MVP is a living, growing collection of oral history and audio documentary projects that amplify the voices of the mixed community.
Be an MVP! Help us expand our intergenerational oral history/audio documentary projects. We train people of all ages in ethical interviewing and recording techniques so that members of the mixed community can connect with each other and record each other’s stories. These stories will be creatively exhibited and can then become part of the public record, which will help elevate the voices of the mixed community.
All donations will be used to further the mission of the Center for the Mixed Voice and to ensure the effectiveness, success, and public participation of the Mixed Voice Project.
Here are some ways that your generous donations will be used:
- Under $10 will help us with basics items for project participants such as: snacks, transportation costs, child-care services during adult workshops, etc.
- $10-$25 will help purchase culturally relevant books for our lending library
- $25 will help subsidize someone’s participation in an Interviewer Training Workshop.
- $50 will help pay for editing and transcribing one interview
- $75 will help pay for graphic design and technical services for public exhibits
- $100 will pay for one Zoom H1 Handy recorder. This recorder is very easy to use by people of all ages and produces great sounding recordings for audio projects. We hope to purchase at least 5 recorders.
Thank you so much for your support.
