Welcome to the FISHKIN BLOG - News broadcasts from Fishkin World Headquarters.

Quiet down and listen up

White people- let’s quiet down and listen up, learn, donate and amplify Black voices.
It’s uncomfortable and its our turn to sit with it.

I’m doing homework instead of marketing these days and I’m supporting the following groups and the work they do for

social change and Black lives. Please join me and share the resources you support and believe in. Let’s do more.

The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund
America’s premier legal organization fighting for racial justice. “While we are living in a moment unlike any we have seen before, LDF will continue to work to protect the most vulnerable in our society.”

Black Lives Matter
Our “mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.”

National Bail Fund Network
The National Bail Fund Network is made up of over sixty community bail and bond funds across the country. We regularly update this listing of community bail funds that are freeing people by paying bail/bond and are also fighting to abolish the money bail system and pretrial detention.
