The events of this past week are impossible to ignore, and we want to add our modest voice to the chorus of support ringing around the world. This systemic, pervasive injustice must end. There is no place for racism and prejudice in this world.
Black communities deserve to live a life without the fear of racial violence. They deserve the right to seek justice for wrongs committed against them. They deserve the right to be protected by those charged with that duty and not victimized by them instead. They deserve the right to basic human decency.
Anything short of that is not enough, and we support those around the world protesting for that change wholeheartedly. While it is difficult, unpleasant, and downright horrifying right now, we hope this leads to genuine, lasting change for the better.
To that end, we’ve donated 100% of our May ad revenue earnings to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund (About / Donate) and encourage others to donate as well. In addition, here's a list of other organizations that work towards racial justice and equality, and we encourage you to donate, or to another of your choice if you have the means to do so.
We’re placing a link to this post to join us on our sidebar (desktop) and below our articles (mobile), and if you do join us in donating, we’d love to hear from you on our feeds. Let’s lift each other, and our neighbors, up.
Right now, we all need to support one another in what were already difficult times before the events of this past week.
