Black Lives Matter and what you can do right now

George Floyd's unjust death is the result of centuries of racism, discrimination, and oppression in our country. Tragically, it is not an isolated event. Too frequently we hear about attacks against Black Americans by law enforcement and others. But racism also pervades in other ways that harm our community, yet fail to gain media attention.

We need systemic change to uproot institutional racism. Many people are in the streets now, calling for change. We cannot wait any longer. We must all join the fight for true equality.

We can't ignore the reality of racism while the lives of Black adults and children are on the line every day. I stand in solidarity, and I will do everything in my power as an elected official and member of the community to address the inequities in our system and bring about necessary change.

Today, consider contributing to the movement. Right now there's a single donation page set up that will split your donation among these progressive organizations and frontline assistance efforts:

  • Reclaim the Block
  • National Bail Out
  • Black Visions Collective

  • Unicorn Riot
  • Campaign Zero
  • Advancement Project
  • The Marshall Project

Suzanne
