12 Places to Donate Right This Moment
Across the country, many are hitting the streets to protest in support of Black men, women and children and the unfortunate prejudice, racism and police brutality that still exists in our society. If you're left wondering what more you can do to help, there are many ways to educate yourself on the systemic racism the Black community faces on a daily basis. And, if you're able, a donation of any amount is a great place to start.
Though there is much more to be done, PureWow has donated to Campaign Zero, an organization that is dedicated to stopping police violence. We hope you'll join us by contributing to the 12 organizations below that are supporting Black communities and furthering the Black Lives Matter movement.
