University of Richmond Students Fight for Justice

To the members of the University of Richmond community, 

WCGA, RCSGA, and other student organizations at the University of Richmond would like to express our deepest condolences to the family of George Floyd and stand in unity with the families of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Abery, and the countless other black people and people of color who have been brutalized or lost their lives at the hands of systemic racism. These individuals are more than just names or a hashtag; they are human beings whose lives were cut short because of systematic issues in our country related to white supremacy and constant injustice. 

In light of these events, we along with our university clubs/organizations are coming together to donate to the following local/national organizations. The money collected will be split evenly between:

The Bail Project : The Bail Project™ National Revolving Bail Fund provides free bail assistance to low-income individuals who are legally presumed innocent, and whom a judge has deemed eligible for release before trial contingent on paying bail. We enable our clients to return home to their families and communities while awaiting their court dates
Color of Change : Color of Change leads campaigns that build real power for Black communities. They challenge injustice, hold corporate and political leaders accountable, commission game-changing research on systems of inequality, and advance solutions for racial justice that can transform our world.
Virginia Anti Violence Project : The Virginia Anti-Violence Project works to address and prevent violence within and against diverse LGBTQ+ communities across Virginia.


A link to additional resources, petitions, and ways to make change can be found here . We urge all members of this community to contribute in any way they can. 

We want to use our voices and resources to be able to help those who are currently in need and contribute to a much-needed and long-awaited change in the United States. We ask that you share this fundraiser with family and friends both in and out of the Richmond community. We believe that every action taken is necessary in working towards a lasting impact for future generations.
