The Emerson College Staff Union believes that Black Lives Matter, that police violence against Black and Brown communities must stop, that racism is systemic and must be dismantled.
In honor of Juneteenth, we’re calling on our members to support and uplift two organizations who do important work in our communities: Families for Justice as Healing and League of Women for Community Service. We know it’s been a hard year for everyone, but if you have the means, please donate to one or both these organizations.
This fundraising page is for Families for Justice as Healing:
Families for Justice as Healing is led by incarcerated women, formerly incarcerated women, and women with incarcerated loved ones. Their mission is to end the incarceration of women and girls.
They are leading work to shift resources away from the criminal punishment system and into Black and Brown communities to provide housing, healthcare, education, economic development, and community-led organizations.
They advocate to decarcerate women and girls in Massachusetts, and work to develop alternatives to police, courts, and incarceration.
This fundraiser will be extended until July 4th.
If you’d like to learn more about the other organization we’re fundraising for, please check out the League of Women for Community Service page.
