KPTZ now partners with Jefferson County Anti-Racist Fund (JCARF), a grassroots reparations and mutual aid project focused on the individual and collective wellness of Black people, Indigenous people, and all other People of Color (BIPOC) in our local community. Since 2019, JCARF has distributed thousands of dollars in direct payments, gift certificates, locally grown food, handmade herbal medicine, and other wellness items to our BIPOC community members. As we look toward the upcoming growing season, JCARF honors the black farmers and chefs who sustain our community. Right now they are focusing on assisting 2 local black-owned businesses: Nadine’s Soul Kitchen and Woodbridge Farm. Find JCARF on Instagram at jeffersoncountyantiracistfund.
