I'm so afraid that we will lose focus after the zimmerman sensationalism dies down so I'm hoping that this thread will help keep up the momentum. 

Let's share our daily contributions to our community; no matter how big, or how small. let us inspire one another to keep pushing, keep our eye on the prize. 

hopefully this thread will become a sticky?


I'll start:

can't say i contributed much today. i did smile and speak to every black person i came in close contact with and held their gaze for a second longer than i usually do. it warms my heart that everyone was receptive to my gesture. 

i also helped a little ole lady parked next to me at the store load groceries in her car. she talked my head off the entire time LOLbut i enjoyed her conversation. 

i use to volunteer with hands on atlanta or at this organization called "cool girls" at least 3x's a month but i've fallen off. i plan on hopping back on that train next week. 

so what did you do today?

Today? I was getting my brow situation right and a Black little boy and his dad were asking for donations for the local city b-ball team. They were working in conjunction with the frozen yogurt place in the shopping center. I'm broke but I made sure to donate a little money. I'm glad I ran into them today.

unfortunately.....nothing...I know this is no excuse...but this weather has me extremely sluggish and tired(no excuse)...but i am staying on top of this tragic event..as long as the media keeps reporting this story I don[t think it will die...and we as black people keep on top AND GET INVOLVED of this it will never die til we see justice for the Martin family and mostly Trayvon  ( i just love that name)  TRAYVON..

just asking is there a donation site where one can contribute $$ to help the Martin family or something?

I applied to volunteer at a couple of Black non profits since the verdict came out. Thats about it so far. But of course I've done things in the past.

THREE WAYS TO GET JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON MARTIN:

1) Sign and share NAACP petition - http://www.naacp.org/page/s/doj-civil-rights-petition

2) Sign and share WhiteHouse petition - https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/civil-rights-prosecution-george-zimmerman-united-states-department-justice-death-trayvon-martin/LkGHz0VH

3) Text JUSTICE to 62227 to demand that the DOJ address the travesties of this tragedy by filing a civil rights violation against Zimmerman.
