Donations and Petitions

If you have the means, there are many resources — from bail funds to GoFundMe fundraisers for victims — that would benefit from your donation. 

For those who may not have the means to donate time or money, YouTuber Zoe Amira put together a video spotlighting music, poetry, and art from Black artists, with all proceeds from the ad revenue going directly to charity (the full list of organizations is at the beginning of the video). People across Tumblr and stan Twitter — pockets of internet communities full of teenagers who don’t have as much financial freedom — are sharing the link to help as much as they can. Simply disable your adblocker, play the video without skipping the ads, and click repeat when it’s over to add further ad revenue.
