We’ve Been Here Before. Let’s Make Sure We’re Never Here Again.

*we will continue to add resources as we find them.

The following are listings to where you can donate and take action to not only help the fight for real freedom in this country, but stop the systemic oppression and murder of black people at the hands of police and racists across the United States of America.

You don’t need another white guy to wax-poetic to you for 3000 words about how “hurt” and “shocked” I am that unchecked aggression and  sociopath tendencies from police took the life of another innocent black man. We just want to take the time here at Hefferbrew to share links that can help not only the African American community, but the community of people of color in its’ entirety in this nation. I can tell you “we need to be better” and all those empty words you’ve heard over and over again from others when these things happen, but that doesn’t help.

Community outreach, putting money in the right places, speaking up and stopping racial and social injustice when we see it, and supporting black and minority owned businesses are ways to achieve the America we all thought we were buying into.

All we can do is be a beacon of outreach and try our best to help end this tyranny that people of color face on a daily basis.  White supremacy is a fire that should’ve never been burning that we need to extinguish forever.
