From MoveOn: “The Movement for Black Lives was founded in response to the Ferguson Police Department’s murder of Michael Brown and has since been at the forefront of the movement for Black liberation, working to protect the rights of protesters and organizing in cities and states to divest from the police.
“National Bail Out is a Black-led and Black-focused organization that works to end the horrific policy of pretrial detention and cash bail that keeps so many people of color in jails and prisons without a conviction, simply because they cannot pay. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic they have been working to bail out Black mothers and caregivers, and they are also working to bail out protesters who have been arrested en masse over the past several days.”
Even a small donation, if you can manage it, helps. And if you can’t, please reblog and share.
For the rest of your life, if anyone asks, “How could it be worse?” just point them in the direction of 2020.
Are you coping okay?
We are fine. We have the privilege of being fine. So, so many others do not.
We are angry and sad and finding ways to help. Each day is about finding something we can do to aid those on the frontlines. We do what we can, we donate where it’s needed, wishing we could do more and donate more.
We have two mixed-race children, 9 and 11. In the midst of a pandemic which has upended Life, we’re trying to make them feel safe and loved, to help them understand what’s going on in the U.S. right now, and how they can make positive changes for the future.
We wish we could tell them that everything is going to be okay. In some ways, it will. But the truth is that we have a long, long way to go before anything will be close to “okay.”
Back to work.
