Are you interested in giving money to support Black political and community groups, health organizations, artists and creators, and/or bail funds, but aren’t sure where to start? We’ve put together a list of Canadian and American organizations currently accepting donations.

If you really want to help but are only able to make a tiny donation due to COVID-19-related financial hardship, remember: many other people are in the same boat, and all of these tiny donations do add up. Your small donation absolutely matters. You can also help out by emailing politicians, signing petitions, sharing links, amplifying Black voices and projects, and attending protests if you feel safe to do so.

This flashpoint may be a moment in history that leads to incredible change. As protests have swept across the world, police reform has become a viable and urgent topic of conversation, and defunding and abolition are on the table in several areas. And, of course, new charges have been laid against the cops who cold-bloodedly murdered George Floyd.

Keep this fire burning.

Donate. Sign. Protest. Share. Vote. Stand.
