<<The embattled racial justice nonprofit Brown Hope delayed the $2,000 monthly stipends that it promised to 25 Black families after its bank froze its account, an email obtained by The Oregonian/OregonLive shows.

Black Resilience Fund Program Manager Alexandrea Wilson wrote in the Dec. 21 email to grant recipients that Brown Hope’s bank was requesting an official letter from the nonprofit’s legal representation to clarify who the current CEO of the organization is in light of recent upheaval at the nonprofit.

“Therefore, Brown Hope’s bank is currently frozen and we cannot process guaranteed income payments,” Wilson wrote. “We are working with a legal team to resolve this issue.”>>
