Donate to the Equal Justice Initiative

I know many of you are reeling from the killing of George Floyd and the coronavirus pandemic. Many innocent people have died in recent months and many of you may have friends or family affected by these tragedies whether it's economically, physically, or emotionally.

In honor of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others I will donate all Hogwarts Live donations made during June 2020 to the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI).

I've made the month of June a triple donation month to further reward people who donate to this cause.

For those of you who don't know the EJI is a 4 star charity on Charity Navigator with 91.2% of its expenses going to the programs and services it delivers.

EJI is working towards ending mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the United States, by challenging racial and economic injustice, and protecting basic human rights for the most vulnerable people in American society.

Founded in 1989 by Bryan Stevenson, a widely acclaimed public interest lawyer and bestselling author of Just Mercy, EJI provides legal representation to people who were illegally convicted, unfairly sentenced, or abused in state jails and prisons.

EJI works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty and discouraged by unequal treatment. They are committed to changing the narrative about race in America.

If you wish to donate directly to the EJI you can do so here. If you forward your donation receipt to along with your HL username I will make sure you receive donation points for your donation.

Don't worry if you can't donate, you can sign the petition Justice for Big Floyd.

Hey, Danilo! Great initiative!

EJI is an awesome charity, but it acts on US only. Since we have people here from all over, I was thinking that maybe it would be great to maybe award points from people donating to related racism awareness charities on their own countries.

I'm not sure about the demographics of the current active users, but maybe it might be worth it.

Either way, thank you for using our little community to spread awareness!
