This year has been tough—and in these past six months alone we've lost too many black lives to police brutality and racism including George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. Families are hurting, so it's more important now than ever before to take action.
Aside from having those hard conversations with your family and loved ones and signing petitions to demand police accountability and justice, one of the most effective ways to help is to donate. No amount is too small, it all adds up.
