Black Lives Matter

Dear Community,

At Give a Folk, we believe the power of sharing and listening to stories builds and strengthens community and that the health of our community reflects how well we treat our neighbors, especially the most vulnerable.

We have been processing and mourning the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Brionna Taylor, George Floyd, and remembering the many others who were murdered before them. Their deaths are brutal reminders of how much work we must do!

To our Black and Brown community we stand as allies and in solidarity with you.

To the members of our community who hold racial privilege; please educate yourself by listening to black storytellers, reading books and articles written by black authors and thinking about how you can use your voice to lift up the people of color around you. We must do better!

Here are a few organizations that are working to bring about social justice and improve the lives of People of Color:

ACLU Foundation

Black Lives Matter

Equal Justice Initiative


National Museum of African American History and Culture

National Urban League
