Black Lives Matter Scrambles To Raise $40K To Keep Fighting ‘State Racism’

Amber Randall | Civil Rights Reporter

The Black Lives Matter movement is pushing to raise $40,000 in four days to continue fighting state racism and anti-black racism, the group announced Thursday.

The push to raise the funds comes on the heels of the group’s four year anniversary since its inception after the 2013 acquittal of George Zimmerman. The movement asked for donations as a way to support the efforts of Black Lives Matter.

“Support the work we are moving both network-wide and locally by becoming a donor. If your donation is to a specific chapter, please note that on the donations page,” the report read.

The movement is also accepting donations in the form of resources, like office space and food.

“You can also contribute in-kind resources such as office space, food donations for meetings or actions, or a particular skill set (legal, communications, cultural work) to our chapters,” the group noted.

Black Lives Matter Los Angeles also joined in on the fundraising effort, launching their own page to fund the movement.

“As we continue to challenge the system, there are real costs involved.  We need your support for materials and supplies, travel, and facilities costs related to actions, meetings, and our ongoing work. Please give what you can and encourage others to do the same,” the group said on its fundraising page.
