TIME FOR CHANGE
"I whole-heartedly support Black Lives Matter. We must all work to remove systemic racism from our law enforcement, prisons, schools, and economy. Racism is a global issue and I will continue to support my friends in the black and brown communities around the world. ~ Heather Cornell
Today, I am watching our children come together to bring about change. I am humbled that they have the strength to be uncompromising and to demand humanity, freedom and real community. I follow the youth as well as the black and brown communities. And, I support their efforts.
I have developed this fundraising initiative to support the movement against inequality and injustice. Each month, I will be accepting donations to support charities that are fighting for change.
The two charities selected for June are:
The Bail Project, a national organization fighting mass incarceration and addressing racial as well as economic disparities in the bail system.
The California Coalition for Women Prisoners, a social justice organization that challenges the institutional violence imposed on women, transgender people, and communities of color by the prison industrial complex (PIC).
