Be the Change! List of Organizations Helping to Fight Against Police Brutality and Racism

What has happened on May 25, 2020 to George Floyd by the hands of those sworn in to "protect and serve" is not an accidental anomaly of excessive force by the police. It was NOT an "one-off" incident, it was NOT coincidental, it was a consequence of the structural racism that has been built into every institution in America. This is what happens when you don't check racism at the door, when it gets woven into the teaching and practices of our organizations and when justice is not served over, and over, and over again. Whether you are Black, White, brown, or any other color, you can help fight for justice for all! All lives won't matter, until #BlackLivesMatter. As some people find difficulty in finding ways that they can help here, this is a full master list of organizations that go towards bailout funds for protestors, grassroots justice organization, community-based groups to fund protester needs, GoFundMe's that go towards victims, and Black businesses that are supporting the cause by giving away supplies/items. Only organizations that are specifically aiding in police brutality and BLM movements are included. I will be updating this list hourly, please share with your network and friends. If we all come together, we can be the change!

For organizational purposes, organizations will be organized by state and color-coded for their purpose. Red will be for bail/legal funds, blue is organizations collecting money to donate, purple will be for grassroots organizations and protester needs, green is black-owned businesses! Every single state in the United States has had a protest in honor of George Floyd, please donate when to any bail fund!
