From Ferguson to New York City, activists have taken to the streets to say no more discriminatory policing and to spur a national dialogue around racism. Launched by the North Star Fund, The Let Us Breathe Fund is an opportunity to turn this crucial moment into a lasting movement that supports activism for fair and just policing and resilient and economically sustainable communities. It will be both a rapid response to support immediate work on the ground, and a longer term investment in Black communities in New York City. Let Us Breathe puts decision-making in the hands of experienced community activists, who understand priorities and have relationships in local communities. Join us in sustaining a democracy rooted in racial justice. By pooling our resources, we can raise the resources needed for immediate action by communities at the forefront of police violence, and for long-term coalition-building and planning.
