Deciding how to support the #BlackLivesMatter can be complicated. So, in hope of inspiring others, let me highlight our personal selections:
The NAACP legal defense fund serves the black community in several meaningful ways, both immediately relevant and more strategic.
The American Civil Liberties Union is always a good choice. Today they are fighting such bullshit as putting open-air, masked protesters in indoor cells together while blaming them for not being safe.
It’s unfortunate that ActBlue’s mutual aid and bail funds collective can be labeled “blue” because taking care of vulnerable people has become a political statement. But even if you’re “red” this is a good way to broadly apply timely help.
Campaign Zero has been working towards sensible US police reform for some time, and is the leading focus fund for this issue today.
