Defend and Support the #CharlotteUprising
On Tuesday, September 20, 2016, Keith Lamont Scott, a disabled Black man, was shot and killed by Charlotte police while he was sitting in his truck reading, waiting for his children to get off the school bus.
Charlotte community and organizers took to the streets all night and into the early morning to fight back against the continued police terror that criminalizes and murders Black people.
As the situation unfolds, organizers on the ground need support to get materials, supplies, and other needs met to continuing supporting folks as they connect their righteous rage to action.
All contributions collected on this page will go towards the CLT QTPOC Coalition, a group of organizers who have been taking action for Black Lives, against HB2, for Standing Rock, among other pressing frontline issues.
Donations will go towards the following needs:
- banners and signs
- an altar at the site of the murder
- camping supplies
- medical supplies
- portable cellphone chargers
