Support Black Lives Matter: Donations, petitions, resources and more

As an electronic music organization, it is our duty to support black communities.

We’ve gathered links to community organizations, petitions, fundraisers, resources, protest guides, educational materials, literature, black artists to support and more.

Please donate if you are financially able. One-time donations are helpful, but recurring donations will go much further.

We’ll continue updating this guide. Please email [email protected] if you have any suggestions to include.
