Your donation to Pimento Relief Services supports critically needed rebuilding efforts in our communities.
We're creating an emergency fund pool for Black business owners and individuals affected by the Uprising, developing coalition-building resources to amplify Black voices in politics, and development of other resources as defined by ongoing community needs.
What is Pimento Relief Services?
In 2012, Tomme Beevas and Yoni Reinharz brought to life Pimento Jamaican Kitchen – an award-winning restaurant that not only brings the natural, local, and slow food philosophy of Jamaica to Eat Street, but provides a hallowed gathering space for anti-racism activists from all around the Twin Cities.
In the wake of George Floyd’s brutal murder at the hands of Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin, Pimento Jamaican Kitchen stepped up as a hub to meet the needs of everyone affected – business owners and homeowners who lost their buildings during the Uprising, activists and protestors demanding justice, and all BIPOC community members who are subject to the violence of racism.
What does Pimento Relief Services do?
Responding to the needs of Black community leaders, Pimento Relief Services (PRS) was created -- a hub that is actively rebuilding and reimagining a world where a Black economy flourishes, reparations and healing are a community priority, and Black individuals are protected and represented in our political system. Unlike many nonprofits, PRS is a convening partner for organizations and individuals actively combatting racism. With our wide network of community partners, we are here to support the many voices fighting for racial equity and liberation.
