Organizations to Support: Racial Justice and Black Lives Edition

One of the things I do privately is donate to one of these organizations whenever a news story of an unarmed black man being shot unjustly comes across my transom. As a result, my PayPal account summary has small donations recorded nearly every month. And I know I don’t hear about all of them.

So today I put together the list of organizations I’ve given to, plus a few more that look promising. Or you can consider giving to one of these Civil Rights organizations, instead.  If you have a little extra this month, consider choosing one to support their good work.
