Help Fight Against Police Brutality!

”I Can Breathe Now” mural by Niko Alexander, Cadex Herrera, Greta McLain, Xena Goldman, and Pablo Helm Hernandez.

In light of the recent horrible events in Minneapolis, here are some fundraisers that help people in need because of the protests and riots against police brutality.

Notes: LinkMinnesota Freedom Fund has received so many donations they are asking folks to donate elsewhere.

Please do NOT donate to any fundraisers associated with Shaun King. King has an extensive history of raising funds that later disappear. Also avoid donating directly to Change.org — the money will not go to the organizers of the petition. Please donate instead to one of the organizations listed below.

Remember: This doesn’t go away just because it stops #trending.

Can’t help financially? No worries! Sign LinkJustice for George Floyd to show some support! You can also LinkStream to Donate, which helps this video project not only share petitions but helps them collect ad revenue for the cause!


“And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? ... It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.”

― Martin Luther King Jr.

If anyone finds more to add to this list, telegram me or DM me on discord.

Do not contact me if you’re going to argue with me about whether or not I am against the police. If you cannot separate authority from the issues from a subset of it, such as assuming hatred for police brutality equates hating all officers as people, then you cannot deny there is an issue worth fixing.
