Protest White Nationalist at A&M

$5,528 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 139 people in 3 months
Richard Spencer is a White Nationalist who wishes to create a white ethnostate in the U.S.  He has promoted "peaceful ethnic cleansing" of non-whites and has also made derogatory comments toward gay people.  

Members of the Department of Psychology at Texas A&M vehemently oppose these hateful views.  

Our goal is to protest Mr. Spencer's talk by soliciting donations to four groups that fight against the hate that Mr. Spencer espouses: the Anti-Defamation League,  the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the National Organization for Advancement of Colored People's legal defense fund.  

These groups were selected because we believe Mr, Spencer and his followers would probably not like to have large sums of money donated to them, particularly if the donations were inspired by Mr. Spencer's speech at Texas A&M.

We hope you can give whatever you can to protest racism with your pocketbook.  Thanks!

Thanks again to everyone who contributed! We ended up raising nearly $5400! Now I need to share information on how the funds will be delivered to the four groups we raised money for: Anti-Defamation League, Simon Wiesenthal Society, NAACP legal defense fund, and the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Because we chose to support four groups rather than one, I cannot name them all beneficiaries through GoFundMe (they only allow one). What I will do is withdraw the funds and then distribute them evenly to each of the groups through their online donation portals. I will then post the donation receipts in another update in case anyone needs them for tax purposes (or if you just want to show them off or print them and frame them, etc.).

Unfortunately, GoFundMe is not a free service and they take about 7.5% of the amount we raised. The good news is that it appears that the Southern Poverty Law Center has a group of donors who match each donation up to $800, which should effectively cover the amount that GoFundMe takes for their service! I'll share in the next update whether we did indeed benefit from these matching donations.

I will go ahead and start making these donations and will post another update once they are made. Thanks for fighting racism!

Thanks again to everyone who has supported this protest donation campaign. We've raised $4,668 in a little over three days! We've got four more days to go. I just donated again. Lots of people had paydays either yesterday or today so please share this again so you might swing someone who has been on the fence about donating a few bucks to send a message against white nationalism. Stand up against racism!

Thanks to everyone who has donated to and promoted this protest donation campaign. In less than 48 hours we've raised $3,555 for charities that fight against the impact of Richard Spencer's hateful rhetoric! At least two of the charities we are donating to have been actively working to protest this event on campus. This campaign will continue through the date of the event, December 6th so please continue to share this with your friends and donate again if you are able. White nationalism has no place in our society.

Please do not call him a White Nationalist. That's what he calls himself but that is deceptive. He is a white Supremacist or Nazi. Don't let him pretty up what he is with some bogus label. Let the truth define this pig
