A word from our founder,
Project TRY prioritizes transparency and accountability in every thing we do. It is important that our community holds us to the same expectations as any other official organization or elected official looking to assist in underserved communities. I do everything I can to be as accessible as possible to these business owners and my community. I answer their calls at 7am and 12am, I meet them in person when they miss my calls, I attend/ coordinate rallies in their name. TRY is about prioritizing the essential and excluded BIPOC working class families impacted by COVID and recent violence in Albany. In that same regard, we understand the language of revolutionary change and that it’s tone is not meant to be soft. So, TRY will continue to show up for Black Womxn, Black Immigrants, Black Dreamers, Black Entrepreneurs, Black Artists and the neighboring communities that may seem forgotten. As long as we are TRY, we will not forget to fight for the resources necessary to rebuild our city. Please consider supporting us in our continuous efforts to rebuild with Black and Brown small businesses impacted by recent events and COVID.
Albany is much more than Lark Street and Downtown. Grab a plate from Lo Nuestro Dominican Restaurant or one of the best smoothies in Albany from @juicesforever and you’ll quickly see for your self. Thank you for your support. More to come soon.
