Des Moines Black Lives Matter Kickoff Fund

Des Moines Black Lives Matter was established on June 2 with the creation of our Twitter, @DesMoinesBLM. Since then, we have organized several community events, including march, protests and rallies. This Black-led movement is seeking change and justice in Iowa, and we need your help. This kickoff fund is to help cover labor costs and other expenses. By donating, you are ensuring that this movement lasts far beyond the last few weeks.
This fund is NOT for food/water supply donations. Please direct those to Food For Our Fighters (on Instagram, donations accepted via Venmo and Cash App).
