Certified EMF Radiation Specialist

We are offering to cover the full tuition for a Black and/or African American candidate to become a professionally certified EMF radiation specialist with the Building Biology Institute (BBI).

I am contacting your group because while most of the program occurs online, there is an in-person component that takes place at the BBI facility in Santa Fe, NM so this would be most appealing to those in or near New Mexico.

You may view more information about the program, as well as the link to apply online, here: https://www.shieldyourbody.com/scholarship/

The application is relatively short and easy, and there is no application fee. The deadline is this Friday, August 7.

Sincerely,

R Blank
CEO, SYB

Help The Homeless Survive Covid 19, Hunger & Heat

Our neighborhood has always had a high population of houseless folks, and the pandemic has only made the situation more dire.  We believe in the resilience and heart of our neighborhood and the funds donated to this project will go to supplies needed for food boxes that will include masks and hand sanitizer. We will also be launching an offshoot of our successful sewing project Masks with a Purpose (a collaboration with the SouthWest Organizing Project) that will provide special durable bags that can be used as sleeping bags. We can't do this without you and appreciate any support you can offer. Thank you for your generosity.
