A $20,000 Match Offer On ACLU Donations Today

Brad, Amy, Joanne, and Fred have been inspired by Chris’s $150,000 match offer yesterday and Albert and Susan’s $15,000 match offer today. So we are joining together (the four of us) and joining the movement they started and doing a $20,000 match offer on ACLU donations today.

And in the interest of keeping this thing we’ve got going, we are committing to run a $20,000 match offer for ACLU donations every month of 2017 on the first of the month.

Our hope is that by raising almost $250,000 during 2017, we will help the ACLU continue the legal and moral fight against the Trump Administration’s effort to institutionalize and legalize hatred, racism, and bigotry.

To participate in this match offer, just send us a receipt of your ACLU donation today. You can do that by tweeting your ACLU donation receipt to any one of us:

        Love this. Thanks. There are a lot of people now who are becoming “wide woke”. And they understand what needs to be done. We need to keep supporting those people, keep taking actions ourselves, and wake up the few remaining who don’t see it.

          let’s hope wide awake. too bad so many people didn’t get to the voting booth!

    Donated. Our legal institutions are one of the institutions of democracy still standing. Let’s keep those standing.

      Thanks Lisa.We are keeping a list. Can you tell us how much? You can email me separately.

        Emailed! Thanks again. I think this is a great, specific, easy action people can take that will have a real impact. The ACLU was one of the first groups to mobilize at the airports.

          and they have a slew of lawyers!
