By now, most of us have heard about the horrific injustice and systematic racism that has led to the tragic death of George Floyd on the 25th of May 2020. The same goes for Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, for Trayvon Martin and Tamir Rice. The list of victims, sadly, goes on and on. Being across the water on the Island of Ireland it is sometimes unclear to people how they can help spread awareness and try to bring justice to the grieving families of those killed by police brutality and racism in the United States and Black communities world wide. The Jumble Magazine is committed to promoting social justice and equality. Below is a list of charities, fundraisers, resources, and petitions that you can sign or (if you are financially able to) donate to from home right now. #SayTheirNames #RestinPower #BlackLivesMatter
