P.M.S. Raises $33k in 24 hours for Anti-Racist Organizations
The idea was hatched Sunday.
Monday we asked members to match donations to organizations working against racism.
Tuesday we told our broader networks on social media that we would match their donations up to $12,500.
Wednesday we had collectively raised $33,000 from more than 150 people who donated to 60 local and national organizations fighting for Black lives, including Equal Justice Initiative and Black Futures Lab that PMS members directly donated to.
Individually, many of us have the ability to donate $10, $50, $100, maybe even $1000 dollars. But this is evidence of our collective power when we collaborate and quickly respond together.
This is the one step in our work towards racial justice. We will continue to band together to
make meaningful change.
