#Give828 2020 comes during a watershed moment. The global COVID-19 pandemic exposed the gross health, socio-economic, and job disparities that left black and brown people more vulnerable to death from the coronavirus. Then, the world witnessed the death of Ahmaud Arbery, an unarmed black man who was gunned down by white supremacists while jogging; Breonna Taylor, an unarmed black woman who was killed by police while sleeping; and George Floyd, an unarmed black man who was killed by a police officer who pressed his knee on his neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Streets are filled with protestors who are demanding justice, and there are calls for sweeping change. The current movement for racial justice is not just an indictment of law enforcement, but also the systemic racism that infects all of our institutions - from education to housing and health care. #Give828 gives grassroots black-led and black-benefitting nonprofit organizations a chance to amplify the work on the ground to empower black people in all facets of life. Changing policing laws is one step - creating healthy communities where black people can live and thrive holistically is the next step to freedom. That’s the power of #Give28 - recognizing and uplifting black grassroots nonprofits who are fighting for black people every day.
#Give28 2020 comes at a critical time. The disproportionate deaths in black communities from COVID-19 and the recent killings of unarmed black people that have sparked waves of protests illustrate the critical need for resources in black communities.
