Who to give to?

It’s the last day of the year, which is the time when people remember they want to give money to non-profits. If you’re looking for recommendations, here’s mine.
Oregon Walks – doing the literally pedestrian work of pedestrian advocacy. It’s not the shiniest work around, but they are tirelessly working to make sure no one gets killed just trying to cross the street, and they do it on a shoestring (pun intended!) budget.
Community Cycling Center: Getting bikes to and empowering underserved communities through bike fun, earn-a-bike, and community bike repair. For 20 years!
BlackGirlsCode: Teaching young black women to make cool things on the computer. They’re fighting racism, sexism, and the tech gap all in one adorable swoop.
Independent Publishing Resource Center: There’s nowhere in the world quite like the IPRC, helping people find their voice through self-publishing by being a scrappy, awesome, magical community center and outreach program. Portland wouldn’t be what it is today if it weren’t for the IPRC.
