We are responsible for the change we want to see in America and in the world. I'm passionate about creating a safe, caring, and healthy environment for ourselves and the generations that come after us. To help get us closer to that vision, I support the following organizations and their missions.
StopBullying.Gov's mission is to stop bullying on the spot. StopBullying aims to "provide information from various government agencies on what bullying is, what cyberbullying is, who is at risk, and how you can prevent and respond to bullying." Education is the first step to ending bullying, to make the world safer for future generations.
Campaign Zero wants to end police brutality. Campaign Zero explains, "Over 1,000 people are killed by police every year in America. We are calling on local, state, and federal lawmakers to take immediate action to adopt data-driven policy solutions to end this violence and hold police accountable." I recommend donating to end police violence and hold responsible parties accountable.
Human Rights First
Human Rights First is an independent advocacy and action organization that challenges America to live up to its ideals, to ensure every American has the ability to secure core freedoms. One of the causes they're fighting for is ending gender-based violence against women and ending sex trafficking, as well as assisting families seeking protection at the border to keep families together.
Planned Parenthood is more than what anti-abortion fanatics make it out to be. They provide essential physical and mental health care for women. Eloquently put, "For more than 100 years, Planned Parenthood has promoted a commonsense approach to women’s health and well-being, based on respect for each individual’s right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning." I encourage you to donate to the organization and show your support for women's care.
I'd love to hear about causes you care about! Comment and link to an organization you support that you think I should look into.
