Here’s Where To Donate To Support The Fight For Racial Justice
Here are five organizations working to protect the rights of black Americans.
Masses of people have gathered around the United States in recent days in a call for racial equality and justice.
The death of Minneapolis resident George Floyd while in local police custody sparked outrage across the country and most painfully within the black community, which has seen this scenario unfold too many times before throughout history. People are taking to the streets, with some even being arrested while engaged in peaceful protests, to have their voices heard to elevate the message of change in our society.
If you are not able to join the organized activities in your area but are interested in donating to support the cause, we’ve researched several organizations that could use your donation. Just because you cannot march with your fellow citizens doesn’t mean you can’t make an impact.
Dozens of organizations work around the clock to fight against racism and police brutality by helping with everything from educating people about the issues at the heart of the protests, coordinating marches and even protecting citizens’ rights during and after these events. These groups need financial support to keep moving forward.
If you want to be part of the cause, then consider contributing to one or more of these organizations.
Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter has been the organization in the spotlight during this time of civil protest. The organization’s goal is to “fight to end state-sanctioned violence, liberate Black people, and end white supremacy forever,” according to its website.
Black Lives Matters does this by organizing protests, disseminating information about injustices against black Americans around the country and circulating petitions.
