21 Individuals and Organizations Building Stronger Black Communities and Food Systems

Following the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, people around the United States are protesting racism, police brutality, inequality, and violence in their own communities. No matter your political affiliation, the violence by multiple police departments in this country is unacceptable. 

We must remember and honor the memory of people including Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and David McAtee, the owner of a barbecue restaurant in Louisville who was killed by police during protests. These murders are a travesty and something that should not happen in the United States of America—or any nation.

It’s time for people of all backgrounds to not only denounce violence, but to actively use their voices, dollars, and power to demand change. I’m in awe of the many people who have been working for years to restore democracy, empathy, and equality to this country.

These 19 organizations and individuals represent a small portion of the efforts underway to fight racism and inequality and to build stronger Black communities and food systems, and I hope you’ll join me in supporting them.
