Black. Lives. Matter.

Last updated: June 19, 2020

I’ll keep this simple: systemic racism has got to stop. Anti-Black police brutality has got to stop. Everyone should feel safe, respected, and able to go about their day unbothered. No one should need to assert their humanity. Black. Lives. Matter.

I am livid from the recent deaths of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, David McAtee…I am angry because instead of taking steps to solve the root problem, leadership calls out more force and further escalates the situation. I want us to be the generation that heals things.

The following are resources that you can contribute your money, time, attention, or skills to. I’ll update the list as I come across them and they seem legit. Please be alert for fake fundraisers: Minnesota Freedom Fund does not have a Venmo account. Thank you for supporting.
