We are hoping to raise $5,000 to disseminate thousands of our All Black Lives Matter lawn signs throughout New York State and our nation at large. We partnered with Im Livin B, a black-owned, local printing company in Buffalo, NY to create our lawn sign design. Also, a portion of our proceeds will benefit Peaceprints of WNY - a New York based organization that shares in our values and commitment to supporting and empowering our black community.
All lawn signs will be shipped free of charge! IN ORDER TO RECEIVE A LAWN SIGN: please CONTACT US at [email redacted]/www.fclny.org with the number of signs you want and your shipping information/address.
Protests and riots are shaking the nation following the death of George Floyd. While awareness of police brutality and racism have resurfaced in the public arena due to video footage and media coverage, the dehumanization of black lives is far from a new phenomenon. Systemic racism plagues every facet of American society; no institution is left unscathed. From our criminal justice system to our schools and healthcare facilities, racism is deeply entrenched.
Feminists Choosing Life of New York (FCLNY) is an educational nonprofit and member of the Consistent Life Network, seeking to fight all forms of publicly sanctioned violence through advocacy and social awareness. FCLNY vehemently condemns the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and the many other nonviolent individuals killed by the police each year. We acknowledge that the problem is larger than any one victim and unequivocally oppose the systemic racism that has led to these brutal acts and the feelings of hopelessness and despair they have created.
During this time of increased awareness of how police violence disproportionately impacts people of color, we must shine light on the systemic nature of racism in America and how it extends beyond police interactions and into the very fabric of our society. Read our full report on systemic racism on our website. FCLNY is committed to fighting for justice for all people facing oppression, and promoting the sanctity of ALL black lives. Our hope is that this lawn sign campaign educates the public on systemic racism and inspires people to continue learning about how they can interrupt these systems and become strong allies and agents of change in their communities. Please join us in our efforts to educate our community on systemic racism and move toward a society that embraces an anti-racist mindset, propelling us toward a future where all human life is deeply respected and valued.
Please join in our efforts to raise awareness about systemic racism and support our local community. The lawn signs are free, but below are our suggested donation guidelines:
● 1 sign for every $18 donated
● 3 signs for every $50 donated
● 7 signs for every $100 donated
