Ways to Help the Black Lives Matter Movement

(via Reclaim the Block (whole list available here) / Esquire as featured on Yahoo! Life)

Take the time to sit down and think of instances where ignorance / prejudice kept you from doing better towards the black community – donating / retweeting / reposting can only go so far, but self-awareness and self-improvement go the distance.

Black Lives Matter – official website of Black Lives Matter.

Du Nord Riot Recovery Fund – Du Nord Craft Spirits is a Black-owned distillery with a building that was damaged. They’ve “received a tidal wave of love and support from across the nation and many have asked how they can help… Therefore, Du Nord is establishing this fund to support black and brown companies affected by the riots.”

Pimento Relief Fund – We’re partnering with Pimento to provide black business without insurance relief after white supremacists set them on fire during the protests.

Minnesota Healing Justice Network – We provide a supportive professional community and mutual aid network for wellness and healing justice practitioners who also identify as IBPOC (indigenous, black, or people of color).

The Bail Project – because police brutality isn’t just limited to Minnesota – it’s happening in your own backyard.

The National Association of Black Journalists – because black journalists are more likely to be arrested / beaten / killed than their white colleagues – look up what happened to CNN Journalist Omar Jimenez.

Communities United Against Police Brutality – self-explanatory.

The Official Geoge Floyd Memorial Fund
