Chip in $5
to support ColorOfChange in 2016 !
Today is #GivingTuesday, a new tradition designed to encourage giving to causes to counterbalance the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. At ColorOfChange, we're taking this opportunity to kick off our fundraising for 2016. Over the next few weeks you'll be hearing a lot from us about the exciting work we're planning for 2016 with opportunities to support your favorite campaigns and tactics.
We need to raise $200,000 by December 31st to make sure we're ready to amplify the political voice of Black Americans in 2016. Help us hit our $25,000 #GivingTuesday goal. Will you chip in $5 today?
In 2016, our movement for racial justice will face a crucial test as the Obama Presidency ends. The Senate is up for grabs and we need to demand candidates put Black issues front-and-center on the national agenda. Unlike other sources of support, your donations give ColorOfChange the flexibility to hold politicians accountable in a way few organizations can — ColorOfChange is the only national Black organization that is a 501(c)4 which allows for direct engagement of political candidates.
Your contribution allows us to run important campaigns like pressuring Hillary Clinton to return private prison lobbyists' money, demanding justice for Sandra Bland or holding the most powerful people in the criminal justice system, prosecutors, accountable for their failure to lock up killer cops.
YES-I want an independent voice for racial justice in 2016. I'll support ColorOfChange on #GivingTuesday!
In 2015, we used your contributions to win victories like:
- Forcing Indiegogo to take down a fundraising page for killer cop Officer Michael Slager
- Protecting the internet as we love it by pressuring the FCC to issue strong net neutrality rules
- Supporting Jamarr Brown and Black South Carolinians in finally taking down the Confederate flag from state capitol grounds
- Successfully demanding the removal from the police force of Officer Casebolt in McKinney, TX and Officer Fields in Richland County, SC for viciously assaulting Black girls
With your support we'll continue to run the high-impact racial justice campaigns you expect. Make #GivingTuesday a success and chip in $50 today.
Thanks and peace,
Rashad, Arisha, Hope, Johnny, Brittaney, Evan, Lyla, and the entire ColorOfChange team
