AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY83
I made lobby wall posts but I think they will get blocked out because of people spamming ACAB so here is some ways you can get involved against cops/police brutality and pro-BLM. Do what you can! Add some other resources down below if you have some. Some people can't protest or riot, but here is some other stuff you can do!
DONATE: https://linktr.ee/showupnow <- a resource with MANY different funds you can donate to
There are many funds by the friends and family members of people who have been murdered by the police. here are a few: George Floyd memorial fund: https://www.gofundme.com/f/georgefloyd?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet Ahmaud Arbery Fund: https://www.gofundme.com/f/i-run-with-maud
There are bailout funds for protestors in almost every major city as well as a national fund in the link above.
