The funds we raise will go to make a counter offer to the town for purchase of the land and statue. Should the town agree the site would be used to erect the very first monument to Black persons on Virginia's Eastern Shore, one of the oldest communities in the United States.
Should the town reject the offer, funds will go to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and Black Lives Matter. If you have a preference on the charity you may indicate that with your donation. No matter the outcome, your contribution will help build a more just and inclusive world. So if we hit our initial goal please keep giving... every dollar will make the world a better place.
While the statues come down in our cities, we cannot leave rural America, and the many persons of color who live there, behind. Justice means bringing along all regions of our country. Racist relics need to be addressed in the smallest of our towns, as much as our Capitals. We hope you will join us and thank you in advance.
