IN SOLIDARITY

Dear friends,⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The Museum of Chinese in America stands against anti-Black violence and the institutional racism that supports it. In solidarity, we seek justice for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Sean Reed, Nina Pop, and too many others in the Black community. Black lives matter.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Every person can be a part of the change we need. If you are able, please consider supporting these causes, memorial funds, and funds for direct families:⁣⁣

Justice for Breonna Taylor Petition and Fundraiser⁣⁣
In Memory of Tony McDade⁣⁣
The Nina Pop Mental Health Recovery Fund⁣⁣

MOCA has also compiled a list of resources and organizations. Although this list is by no means comprehensive, we hope that it might serve as a starting point, among other resources and voices, to help us navigate together this fraught and complex journey alongside our allied communities.⁣⁣

Reclaim the Block⁣⁣
Black Visions Collective⁣⁣
#BlackLivesMatter⁣⁣
#SayHerName⁣⁣
Minnesota Freedom Fund*⁣⁣
Brooklyn Bail Fund*⁣⁣
Bail Funds/Legal Help by City⁣⁣
The Okra Project⁣⁣
⁣⁣
*Organizations with an asterisk have indicated that due to the recent outpouring of support they have received, donations should be directed elsewhere, especially to those that are Black and BIPOC led, to support the ongoing struggle for racial justice and equity. We have kept these organizations on the list so that the public is aware of these options.⁣⁣

⁣⁣
In solidarity,⁣⁣
