We are currently in one of the most trying times for our nation.
We’ve had the announcement of a global pandemic, unprecedented unemployment rates, and worldwide protests for change; 2020 is shaping up to be a year that changes us all. I am not typically one to get political, however, what is going on right now with racial injustice, loss of rights, etc. is something that SHOULD bother you; even if you think it doesn’t affect you, it does. Saying this isn’t your problem only sets you up for future problems.
As protests go on, many have reservations about going to rallies because there are numerous threats for physical safety and your overall health. If you decide not to protest you can still help!
We’ve provided a list of organizations that need financial support to continue making a real impact.Here are our picks.
