AFRORACK Chicago GoFundMe

Spotted this fundraiser on Noise Engineering's Twitter, @noiseeng.

First a quick clarification, there are two references to Afrorack on the site, one is a Chicago music education institution, which this post refers to, and another is the DIY maker Afrorack in Africa. A quick search on Afrorack will bring up posts for both.

That said, AFRORACK Chicago has a GoFundMe page up to help them running during the COVID-19 outbreak. Click through for additional details.

"We don’t know how long we’ll be in this state of emergency. Keeping the lights on at AFRORACK is costly, and with all classes canceled during the COVID-19 lockdown, our organization is struggling to stay afloat. No classes means, no income. I Don’t have the funds to keep this going on by myself anymore.

AFRORACK is the Chicago music education institution, a central hub of the city's youth modular synthesis education that's been serving the black and brown community since 2016. It's both a vital source of audio-focused STEM education in Chicago and an opportunity to inspire children of color. I’ve been keeping this afloat alone from its beginning, but Now AFRORACK needs your help.

In these challenging times, we need to band together with our friends and family. Together, we can help ensure AFRORACK stays active in Chicago so many more generations can benefit from its important mission for community and wellness."
