We've committed to volunteering our team's time to activism. Each employee gets paid to spend a minimum of two hours per week on activism.
Many of the issues we've been addressing are not making further progress from phone calls - such as Breonna Taylor. Government officials voicemail boxes are full, and we are not receiving any replies. We're mainly focusing on ACLU volunteer calling this week.
Below is a list of what we're doing this week - it's organized so you can easily join us in enacting change.
At the bottom of this post, you can find some thoughts from us about the activism work we did this week.
donations to support native americans
→ If you can, donate to help support Native Americans during the covid-19 crisis. Native American communities are at a severely high risk during the pandemic.
donations to support black trans people
Direct giving is the most available and requested option to support Black Trans people. Here are some resources to donate to.
→ Black Trans Travel Fund (East Coast)
ACLU Volunteer Calling
We've signed up for the ACLU's Volunteer Call Team. They make it very easy - they provide a call training guide and call scripts.
→ Call your State Representative and demand the House pass a moratorium on big corporate mergers during the coronavirus crisis (phone number lookup and script provided).
→ Call your Senator and demand they pass the HEROES act to provide specific protections and grants for Black-owned businesses (phone number lookup and script provided).
→ E-mail your state, county and city officials demanding they reform policing.
