About the Equal Justice Initiative
EJI challenges racial and economic injustice, provides legal representation to prisoners who may have been wrongly convicted of crimes, and protects basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society. Founded by celebrated civil rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson, EJI works to end mass incarceration and excessive punishment, stop the prosecution of children as adults, aid the mentally ill in the criminal justice system, confront the history of racial inequality in America and provide free legal services to the poor, incarcerated and condemned.
About this campaign
This charity fundraiser will have all of its proceeds going to the Equal Justice Initiative. For every donation received, I will match the donation up to the campaign goal. In addition, at the end of the campaign my employer has a donation matching program, so the total donations raised within this campaign should be doubled. I'll post an update on this campaign page at the end of the fundraiser.
If you have already made a donation to other Black Lives Matter efforts, no problem, feel free to message me a receipt of the donation and I will match your donation within this campaign on your behalf (ie. "This donation is a match on behalf of your name/anonymous's donation").
I've seen others do personal donation forwarding within their company, but I'm doing this approach so that all the donors can keep receipts (ie. for taxes), and this should provide better transparency for the overall campaign (you can see other donations and my donations).
