Black Lives Matter Conversation

Our nation is engaging in conversations that need to be had about how Black Americans face disproportionate violence at the hands of police, a disproportionate rate of incarceration, and systematic racism that prevents access to resources. Below are listed ways that you can help with or without donating money.

This list is sourced from submissions from our PAWMA community and compiled by our newsletter editor. It is, of course, incomplete—we invite you to continue the conversation by sharing resources and reactions in your training communities and in our racial justice programming at this year’s camp!

DONATE

National

  • The Bail Project: National revolving fund that battles mass incarceration
  • Black Lives Matter: International organization with a mission to “eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.”
    Three women founded #BlackLivesMatter in 2013 as a response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's murderer.

Local
