Black Lives Matter

The protests that spread across the world over the last few weeks have surfaced for many what Black Americans have known for generations — that the systemic racism built into the foundation of American society endures to this day. Its toxic persistence has resulted in the senseless murder of countless Black people in our country. It fuels disparities in our criminal justice system, in voting, in education, in health care, in housing, and in far too many aspects of everyday life. The recent tragic murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Ahmaud Arbery brought into stark relief the racial injustices and inequities that pervade our nation’s criminal justice system. The structural racism embedded in that system is a reflection of our society writ large. We must do everything we can to reform the criminal justice system and put an end to police misconduct and brutality. But we can’t stop there. We must commit ourselves to actively engaging in the difficult and uncomfortable conversations necessary to meaningfully address racism and finally root out systemic inequality.

We are asking you to support some of the organizations on the ground that are leading this fight for change, and, in many cases, providing direct aid in communities.

We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the protesters who have been calling for change in recent weeks and with the community organizers and activists who have dedicated their life’s work to dismantling systemic racism and oppression. Please join us in supporting this movement.

By donating, your contribution will be split among the Minnesota Freedom Fund, Black Visions Collective, Reclaim the Block, Black Lives Matter Global Network, Campaign Zero, Movement for Black Lives, Emergency Release Fund, and Community Justice Exchange.

At All On The Line, we will continue to push for a more fair and equitable America that gives all people a voice in our democracy. And we will work every single day to ensure this country lives up to its ideals of justice and fairness for all.
