Meeting This Moment

"Racism is not getting worse. It's getting filmed." - Will Smith

We are at an inflection point in American history. At least we at Roadmap hope that it is. Long have black and brown Americans suffered under the systematic racism infecting our government, our society, our media, and most visibly right now, our policing.

We are inspired by the massive, diverse crowds peacefully protesting the slow, public murder of George Floyd at the hands of police; 8 minutes and 46 seconds of suffocating horror that has awoken the entire world to the inequality, pain, trauma, and fear that Black and Americans of Color live with every day of their lives.

To help support this moment in American history, which we hope will have far-reaching consequences for the direction this country takes in the coming years, we want to use whatever platform we have to express our support for this movement and these protesters.

Today, Roadmap is making a donation of $2,000 to each of the below organizations to help support the citizens out there fighting for equality. We hope that, if you have the means, you might consider chipping in what you can, too.

  • Colin Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Camp has established a legal defense initiative to provide legal services for protesters on the ground.
  • The Bail Project works nationally, including several cities where protests are taking place, including LA, Louisville, and NYC.
  • Unicorn Riot is a non-profit media organization dedicated to fair, on-the-ground reporting on civil disobedience, police brutality, and white supremacy.

Black Lives Matter.
Democracy Dies in Darkness.
#RESIST

Please stay safe, wherever you are.

All Our Love,
-The RoadCrew
