All across the nation, racial justice protests are going on and have been going on for months. If you do not live in one of the cities currently protesting or you are otherwise unable to participate in the protests, you may wonder what you can and should do to support those racial justice protests going on around the country. There are many steps that you can take to show your support for the racial justice cause without having to participate in a protest. Learn about some of these steps so you can be sure you are doing everything in your power to support the racial justice protests sweeping the nation.
Donate to a Racial Justice Nonprofit
Perhaps the simplest step you can take to show your support of the racial justice protests going on in America is to donate to a racial justice nonprofit organization. Making a racial justice nonprofit donation, no matter how big or small, shows that you are putting your money where your mouth is. You are funding the cause and even helping to directly support protesters.
Some racial justice nonprofit organizations are currently focusing on posting bail for protesters who are arrested during peaceful protests. Others fund aspects of the cause like pursuing legal justice and funding the movement as a whole. Choose one or two racial justice nonprofit organizations that speak most closely to your vision and values and donate to those organizations.
Create a Fundraiser for a Racial Justice Nonprofit
If you want to do a little bit more than making a racial justice nonprofit donation, you can go to the next level and create a fundraiser to raise money for a racial justice nonprofit. Not only will you be donating to the cause, but you will be encouraging others to donate to racial justice nonprofits.
In light of COVID-19, a large in-person fundraiser may not be possible, but you could, alternatively, hold a teleconferencing fundraiser. You could also crowdfund online, create a product like t-shirts or hats or masks (very popular right now) related to the cause. Then, you could donate all the profits to the racial nonprofit you are supporting.
While fundraising may be difficult in the current global climate, it is not impossible. Just get creative and collect those racial justice nonprofit donations from as many people as possible.
With these ways to support the racial justice protests in mind, you can be sure you take steps to support the protests even if you cannot be there in person.Share
