ATRL Feedback

ATRL is an online platform comprised of people from all over the globe. As such, when one community is under attack, ATRL believes in advocating for that community in solidarity in whatever capacity we can. For too long, the black community has suffered at the hands of violent law enforcement that abuse their authority, power, and privilege to the neglect of the black community. For too long, the plights and cries of the black community have gone ignored by those in power. It is utterly crucial that black lives finally gain the long overdue equal treatment under the law they have been denied throughout history.

 

Black lives matter. Black futures matter. Black children matter.

 

ATRL unoquivocally believes in racial equality and encourage everyone to help out in whatever capacity you can: protest, speak up, donate, etc.

 

Below is a list of causes that you can donate to, in whatever amount you can spare, to help black lives:

 

 

 

  • The Bail Project, a nonprofit that aims to mitigate incarceration rates through bail reform.
  • The National Bail Fund Network also has a directory of community bail funds to which you can donate, along with a COVID-19 rapid response fund. Another list of funds is available here.
  • Black Visions Collective, a black, trans, and queer-led social justice organization and legal fund based in Minneapolis-St. Paul.
  • A Gas Mask Fund for black youth activists in Minneapolis is raising money to buy gas masks for demonstrators who’ve faced tear gas during protests.
  • The NAACP Legal Defense Fund, which supports racial justice through advocacy, litigation, and education.
  • Communities United Against Police Brutality, which operates a crisis hotline where people can report abuse; offers legal, medical, and psychological resource referrals; and engages in political action against police brutality.
  • Northstar Health Collective, a St. Paul–based organization that provides health services and support at protests.
  • Free Them All for Public Health, which aims to free incarcerated people amid the coronavirus pandemic, is raising money for people who have been arrested during New York City protests over the weekend. What doesn’t go toward local bail will reportedly be sent to other cities, and COVID Bailout NYC <https://bailout.nyc/>.
  • The Atlanta Solidarity Fund is raising bail and bond money for jailed protestors in Atlanta.
  • No New Jails NYC aims to keep the city from constructing new jails, and to instead divert funds that currently go toward the police and incarceration toward housing, ending homelessness, mental health, and other community support systems.
  • The Know Your Rights Camp, an organization founded by Colin Kaepernick that provides education and training in black and brown communities, set up a legal fund for Minneapolis protestors.
  • Fair Fight, an organization founded by Stacey Abrams that aims to end voter suppression and equalize voting rights and access for fairer elections.

This is why we stan ATRL. 

Thank you. 

A fight against oppression in America is also a fight for global oppression at the hands of the United States. 

So many people suffer worldwide due to the U.S. and we can combat that by fighting oppressive powers right here on our own soil. <3
