More info on the groups this benefit supports:

Street Level Health Project started in 2000 in East Oakland with the goal of improving the health and well-being of underserved urban immigrant communities in the Bay Area. The organization is an entry point to the health care system for those most often overlooked and neglected, namely the uninsured, underinsured, and recently arrived. The programs are particularly geared towards the local day laborer population. Street Level offers a wide variety of free services, including: medical screening, a lunch program, mental health support, and more. The Herbal Medicine/Nutrition program began in October 2009, with the aim of offering alternative and preventative options for both acute and chronic conditions. These services are available in Spanish & English every Tuesday afternoon.http://www.streetlevelhealth.org

In the words of its founder, Elouise Brown: Dooda Desert Rock (“NO” Desert Rock) Organization (based in New Mexico) is a group of indigenous residents dedicated to stopping the ill-conceived Desert Rock plant proposed by the Sithe Global LLC corporation, Desert Rock Energy Co, LLC and the Dine Power Authority. We believe economic development must not come at the expense of the health of our children, the air we breathe, our sacred land and water, and our way of life. As Navajo people, our work and dedication is centered on the Dine philosophy of Balance, Harmony, Respect and Equality. As children of Mother Earth and Father Sky, we are honored and obligated to protect and preserve the natural state of Harmony and Beauty. Our responsibilities are not limited to the four elements of life but all life that encompasses our very existence as humans. We aim to honor our fore-fathers, their teachings and wisdom against all desecrating entities, corporate
intrusion and environmental injustices.
