ACTION 3: REBUILD MINNEAPOLIS + ST PAUL

Minneapolis has been the epicenter of the uprising after the death of George Floyd. First, it is important to support the people at the frontlines of this movement, and help to deliver resources to the affected lives. We have an entire community to rebuild.

ACTION 4: PROTECT PROTESTORS IN PORTLAND

Right now, Portland is experiencing an extreme uprising. Riots, protests, and other actions have lead to federal agents kidnapping protesters, bringing them to undisclosed locations and interrogating them. Police are using an unfair amount of teargas and rubber bullets. They are terrorizing the protesters.

 

Much of what is happening in Portland is not being covered by the news. Journalists, press and reporters are almost ALL freelance. Here is a list of reporters in the trenches who you can support.
