Why Donate to the Sherman Phoenix?
The Sherman Phoenix is a national model that has proven that translating conversation into action opens powerful possibilities. Birthed after a 2016 police shooting of an unarmed Black man in Milwaukee, the Sherman Phoenix transformed a fire-damaged bank building into a thriving hub for 27 Black-owned businesses and a vibrant community space that embraces talent and innovation and inspires new narratives for our future.
