Rapid Response Fund

“We’re reminded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in his letter from a Birmingham jail, ‘We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right,.’ Now, more than ever, we must honor the many innocent lives lost to police violence by resourcing the people who are leading the charge to achieve justice and equal accountability for everyone. These are times for courage, unabridged love for humanity and laser-focused attention on practices that work to ensure everyone receives justice and safety.” — Flozell Daniels Jr., Foundation for Louisiana’s CEO.
