We mourn for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, Dominique Fells, Khalief Browder, and countless others who have had their lives taken from them unjustly because of the color of their skin and/or their LGBTQIA+ identity, whether by police brutality or by the corrupt criminal justice system.
At this moment in history, while the racial justice movement is making headlines across the world, we feel it is more important than ever to step up and support Black lives in whatever way we can. The ACLU Foundation is the 501(c)(3) fundraising branch of the American Civil Liberties Union, which has long stood up against racial injustice and continues to do this work today.
From the ACLU website: Black people are being murdered and brutalized by police with near impunity. Act with us to end police brutality, demand racial justice, and defend our right to protest. Your donation will fuel our legal battles and urgent advocacy efforts.
