Open Your Purse: Places to donate and help the protests

A slideshow dedicated to places to donate.

Instead of posting a black square, I spent some time this afternoon compiling a list of bail funds, mutal aid funds, memorials, and other donation pages I was able to find and verify. This list is in no way comprehensive but its certainly a start and I hope it encourages some of you to do more if you’re in a position of being able to open your purse and donate!!! If you can’t donate please sign some of the hundreds of petitions that are out there right now. They are not difficult to find. White and non-black people of color need to remember that it is NOT the responsibility of Black people to educate you and hold your hand through all of this. It’s one thing to say you stand with them in solidarity but what really counts is putting your money, attention, and energy where your mouth is.
