As people across the country continue to protest the murder of George Floyd and the systemic racism that exists in our society today, it is important that we do all we can to continue our collective struggle for justice.
During this incredibly difficult time in our country’s history we must stand together to end police brutality and murder, dismantle racism, and create a government and economy that works for all, not just the few.
The good news is that there are a number of grassroots organizations that are doing enormously important work in the struggle for racial justice. In many cases, they are on the front lines. One of the ways that we can have an impact right now is by contributing to them and supporting their efforts.
You can read more about these organizations below, but first we’d like to ask:
Here is a bit more about the organizations and the work they are doing:
NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund is the country’s top legal firm fighting for racial justice. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, it seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve justice for all. It also defends the gains and protections won over the past 75 years of civil rights struggle.
Poor People’s Campaign confronts the interlocking evils of systemic racism, poverty, and militarism. As a nation we are at a critical juncture — and we need a movement led by working people that will shift the moral narrative, impact policies and elections at every level of government, and build lasting power for poor and impacted people.
Color of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization that helps people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. As a national online force driven by 1.7 million members, they move decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people in America.
The Citizenship Education Fund, founded by the Rev. Jesse Jackson, is working to protect, defend and gain civil rights by leveling the economic and educational playing fields while promoting peace and justice around the world. It is a multi-racial, multi-issue, progressive organization that is dedicated to improving the lives of all people by serving as a voice for the voiceless.
Mijente is a national hub for Latinx and Chincanx organizing that advocates on behalf of those communities as well as other oppressed communities. It has been leading the charge within Spanish language media, attempting to bring awareness and solidarity with Black-led protests and organizations. It serves as a link between many Black-led organizations and Spanish-speaking communities, participating and leading in solidarity actions in several states.
The Bail Project is a national nonprofit organization that pays bail for people in need, reuniting families and restoring the presumption of innocence. In fighting mass incarceration, they aim to secure freedom for as many people as possible and ensure equal justice for all.
These groups are doing important work in communities all across the country, and now more than ever they are counting on our support.
If you can afford it — and only if you can afford it — will you add a contribution today?
Thank you for being a part of this movement. The struggle continues.
