Systemic racism impacts every facet of society -- it affects Black Americans' access to health care, their right to vote, safe and affordable housing, education, and equal pay. It infects our justice system and law enforcement, which continues to mercilessly slay Black lives. Systemic racism is the reason why crises like COVID-19 and climate change disproportionately affect people of color.
Too many Black lives have been stolen by the police, racist armed vigilantes, and our prison system. Too long have Black lives needlessly suffered in our society. It's time to take action.
One of the best things you can do to help support this iteration of the Civil Rights Movement is to donate to racial justice organizations doing the work to protect and uplift Black lives. An easy way to do this is to participate in CREDO's monthly public vote that determines how CREDO will allocate $150,000 to three different racial justice organizations that are playing key roles in the Black Lives Matter movement.
Sign your name today and we'll send you instructions on how you can vote for up to three organizations to receive vital funding from CREDO, that will further support the fight to end systemic racism and ensure equal rights and opportunities for Black Americans.
