WHO WE ARE
Together we Represent the Youth.
After speaking to local organizers, Project TRY is the only grassroots group in Albany attempting to fundraise for the impacted businesses on the South End and Central Ave districts. This initiative aims to support the small businesses that experienced devastating damages due to recent events in our neighborhoods. These business owners had already been experiencing a sharp decline in revenue due to the spread of COVID-19, with this incident adding to the pressure. Many involved in the destruction of these businesses were not even residents of these neighborhoods. The following day, the community came together to clean up, and it was clear that more than brooms would be needed to restore the businesses impacted. Support to the companies affected by the looting will be offered in two forms: Monetary Grants and Community Efforts. Giving back to a community so often overlooked when they genuinely need it can help give back hope, strengthen, and rebuild our community.
