About this Event
Earl's was started as an immediate reaction to the outcry for support from citizens protesting the deaths of Breyonna Taylor, George Floyd, DeOnté Rawlings, and many others. As the Earls Community grew in size and closeness we came in contact with the reality that many of our supports, volunteers and guest were facing immediate housing and economic crisis. As we noticed a demand from a growing population of homeless citizens our leader Reginald Guy Decided to encourage the earl community to start and operate a non-profit that meets the needs of the people. Thus, The Purpose Party Was Created.
In providing free food, water, clothing, and hygiene products for citizens and residents in the communities we are removing socio-physical barriers to civic engagement. In removing the following socio-physical barriers to civic engagement such as: lack of; essential hygienic products, adequate: nutrition, hydration, civic education, shelter, first-aid, and climate protection, we enable citizens and residents to be secure in engaging one another in a equitable and just manner that fosters self-respect, community togetherness, and civic engagement.
Once we have addressed and defeated these pressing issues that provide barriers to civic engagement; we then create forums from which we begin to develop the community literacy, and tackle other root issues that lead to the need for freedom fighters such as ourselves.
