Galerie Lelong is matching your donations to The Bail Project and The Equal Justice Initiative (EJI)
For all of us, the past months have been a challenging time as we navigate life in a global pandemic. But for many it has proven tragic. The crisis has exacerbated and made more visible systemic injustice and failings in the social contract. The inhumane murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor as well as the many African American lives lost to COVID-19 weigh heavily upon us and demand a response from all people of conscience.
Stating that we stand in solidarity with those in our communities fighting injustice is not enough. We would like to partner with you by matching your donations to The Bail Project and The Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). These organizations aim to change the narrative about inequality and race in the US and to work toward long-lasting reforms.
To participate, please email a screenshot of your donation e-receipt that includes your name and donation amount to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond with ours. All donations will be matched up to a total of US$5,000 from the gallery.
Though a donation will not solve systemic problems of racism and discrimination, our voices together are a small step toward finding ways to end these cycles of violence and inequality. Please join us.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” – Martin Luther King, Jr., April 16, 1963.
