Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. We cannot rely on our weak perceptions to take action, they never let us get there. They never goad us into action. We need results, we need action and above all, it is our life and we need complete control on it." In an effort to take action around the things we truly believe in, we have put together a list of organizations where you can donate. Each, in their own way, advocates for a better world, a safer world, a less judgemental world, and a world where we are unified and we are all truly created equal. Check out the list below, find what speaks to you, and if you can, please donate.
