UMich MT21 Fundraiser for Black Lives Matter

Want to join us in making a difference?  We're the senior class of Musical Theatre BFA majors at the University of Michigan, and we're raising money to benefit Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (via Thousand Currents), and any donation will help make an impact. If you enjoyed watching our senior entrance, please consider making an additional donation to this fund we care so deeply about. If you can't afford to give, consider leaving our entrance running on a loop, as all money made from views will also be going to this movement. Thank you in advance for your contributions! 

More information about Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (via Thousand Currents):
Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. (BLM) is a home to Black folks and our global allies, as we demand a world where Black people are liberated. Founded in 2013 by Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi in response to the acquittal of the man charged with Trayvon Martin’s murder, BLM is a chapter-based, member-led organization with chapters in the U.S., UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate White supremacy and build power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes through its educational and charitable activities. We support the lives of the Black queer and transgender communities, the disabled, those with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives. BLM’s activities will primarily consist of the following: -Creating national and global campaigns. BLM will do this by creating global opportunities for mass-scale impact, as well as amplifying the activities of chapters. -Supporting the work of chapters as they represent BLM-Providing resources and key leadership in developing global regions.-Investing in Rapid Response Chapter Needs.-Black Lives Matter Arts+Culture. BLM’s Arts+Culture programs expand and explore this moment in art and culture that is reflective of the 1960s and 70s when the Civil Rights, Black Power, and Women’s Rights Movements and efforts to diversify art institutions dominated the discourse.Thousand Currents is the fiscal sponsor of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation. The organization is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization for both federal and state purposes. Donations made to Thousand Currents that are designated for Black Lives Matter will be directed to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.
