MHS Boys Soccer Movement for Racial Justice

A long unresolved problem has been brought back to the forefront of our daily lives. In the midst of the deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, there has been resounding support to call and fight for the end of police brutality and systemic racism. As members of the Montclair community, social injustice surrounds us despite our pride in a diverse demographic. We would like to make a difference because this is not a moment, it is a movement.

The Montclair High School Boys Soccer team is hoping to fundraise for an organization that seeks to actively address police brutality and systemic racism. Our goal is to raise a total of $2,000. As excitement for the season grows, four weeks prior to the start of the season we will be voluntarily training 3 days a week ‪at 6:15‬ in the morning. We have set up this GoFundMe to encourage friends and family members of each player to donate for each session the player attends. We will be donating the money we raise to the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. We hope that you will be able to contribute and remember this is not just a moment but it is a movement.

More information about NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund: The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. is America’s premier legal organization fighting for racial justice. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans.
