Here is a list of donations, protests, and petitions that you can do to help the people in #Ferguson and to assist #MikeBrown and #EzellFord all others who have been killed by the hands of the police. I will try to update as much as possible.
Donations for Mike Brown’s Family:
Michael Brown Memorial Fund:
These funds will assist his family with costs that they will acquire as they seek justice on Michael’s behalf. All funds will be given to the Michael Brown family.
This effort will help support Mike Brown’s siblings, 2 younger sisters and a younger brother go to college. It is run by Sara Goldrick-Rab, UW professor of the Wisconsin HOPE Lab (http://www.wihopelab.com) and Michael Johnson of the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County (Madison, WI) can vouch that all funds will go directly to the family.
Bail and Legal Fund for Those Arrested During Ferguson Anti-Police Demonstrations: A bail and legal fund has been established to support people who have been arrested during the anti-police demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo. If you have a friend or family member who was arrested, please email us their name at email@example.com
They are looking for medical and mental health professionals, counselors, as well as community organizers to go to Ferguson to assist those who are in that area. Also if you are willing to donate sky miles or buddy passes please contact: Please use this email address for volunteer services ONLY: firstname.lastname@example.org
There is also an amazon wish list set up to help children receive school supplies in Ferguson. This list is SEPARATE from the wish list that is set up for protestors:
These items are being directly shipped to St. Louis, MO to assist protestors who are on the frontline in Ferguson. It includes toiletries, items to help in clean up the area, food etc. You can also send notes in the some of the packages shipped.
This fund was originally set up to feed the students who go to school in Ferguson who were to start school on August 14th. Many students in Ferguson rely on meals provided in school, and the delay in the start of classes means that many of the children will not eat.
Mike Brown Law. Requires all state, county, and local police to wear a camera:
A petition for a Mike Brown Law is asking to be created because to the latest accounts of deadly encounters with police. That law will set aside funds to require all state, county, and local police, to wear a camera.
United Way of St. Louis has crisis support services that are available to those affected by the tragic events in #Ferguson. To find help, please call 2-1-1 or 1-800-427-4626.
Students from Walnut Grove Elem can come to the Ferguson Library where a few teachers have activities set up for their students from 9am to 4pm. Please refer to the website for more info: ferguson.lib.mo.us
