In recognition of the need for concrete action in response to the murder of George Floyd, the latest in a long list of Black people unjustly killed by police, Pelgrane Press is donating $1000 and 10% of all our webstore sales in June to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
Police impunity remains an ongoing and powerful force, creating selective authoritarianism within systems worldwide. It is just one component of the systemic racism that oppresses Black people every day, disenfranchising them from equal access to basic civil rights such as education, housing, employment, and voting.
The Legal Defense and Educational Fund addresses these global structural issues through litigation, advocacy, and public education programs. In solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter, we have chosen to support and spotlight it.
