As thousands of people take to the streets to protest racial discrimination and the many Black Lives lost at the hands of injustice, we also have the unfortunate fact that this deadly pandemic is still upon us. The lives at risk of the injustice being fought against are also the most vulnerable to COVID-19. Many will not be in position to pay the inevitable cost associated with their brave efforts. This fund is to assist those that contract this disease while protesting and other protest related injuries as many are being attacked while speaking out.
We haven't been able to get ahead of COVID-19 thus far, but this is certainly another step in the right direction!
Funds will assist with:
- Testing in relation to COVID-19
- Treatment/hospital bills as related to COVID-19
- Injuries obtained while protesting
- Bail relief and/or court expenses for protestors.
Black Lives Matter! We stand with those protesting in support of the change that we need to see.
