Black Lives Matter
This organization's objective are to "(1) the racial and socioeconomic achievement gap that undermines our ideals of freedom, equality and opportunity; (2) the limited or restricted sense of youth agency and voice; and (3) the cultivation of the next generation of scientists, conservationists and planetary stewards." They do this by providing SCUBA and research opportunities.
The Bail Project fights to end the inequality of the cash bail system. A majority of people held in prison are actually pre-trail dittanies who cannot afford bail. By donating to this organization, you can help pay someone's bail. This is also an issue of racial justice because Black people are overrepresented in prisons.
This organization works to preserve maritime archeology, and it's primary objective is "the protection, documentation and interpretation of African slave trade shipwrecks and the maritime history and culture of African-Americans who formed a core of labor and expertise for America’s maritime enterprises."
Here are some of my favorite books about or by Black people. This list is by now means expansive and always expanding.
