If you’re outraged like us and looking for ways to demand justice over George Floyd’s killing, below is a list of resources. We are not free until we’re ALL FREE. We’ve donated to the Minneapolis Freedom Fund, but we’ve gotten word that they are overwhelmed with donations and are asking that you donate to We Love Lake Street, Reclaim The Block or Black Visions Collective.

- We Love Lake Street is a fund to help Lake Street businesses rebuild and reopen. Our sister studio Modo Yoga Minneapolis is on Lake Street. DONATE HERE
The Minnesota Freedom Fund, a grassroots organization currently working with the National Lawyers Guild and the Legal Rights Center, will use donations to bail out arrested protestors and to supply those on the field. DONATE HERE

Demand County Attorney Mike Freeman charge the officers with murder by calling him at 612-348-5550.
Color of Change’s petition demands that Frey block the involved officers from receiving their pensions and ban them from being able to become police officers again, as well as demands that Freeman charge the officers with murder.
You can also text “FLOYD” to 55156 to sign the petition.
Another petition posted on Change.org is also trying to get the attention of Frey and Freeman. It currently has more than two million signatures and is aiming for at least three million.
