What is the COVID-19 Protest Relief Fund?
Thousands of people are taking to the streets to protest racial discrimination and systemic injustice. Unfortunately, at the same time, we are still facing a deadly pandemic. Those at risk of the injustice we’re fighting are also the most vulnerable to COVID-19. Many of the protestors are not in a position to pay the inevitable cost associated with their brave efforts.
The COVID-19 Protest Relief Fund, a mutual aid fund, is designed to assist individuals who contract this disease while protesting, or who sustain other protest-related injuries, as many are being attacked while speaking out.
The effective and timely distribution of funds to eligible applicants is a top priority for us. To achieve these key goals, we have partnered with a network of established organizations that share our vision.
