Book Sales Supporting Justice and Change

Intro

We stand in solidarity with the protestors and activists in the fight for racial justice and change.

Through July 1st, 100% of the sales for the Peter Blum Edition book publications below will be donated to three philanthropic organizations working to bring about social change and justice. We will also match each book sale with a donation of an equal amount.

Black Lives Matter - An organization intended to build connections between Black people and allies to fight anti-Black racism, to spark dialogue amongst Black people, and to facilitate the types of connections necessary to encourage social action and engagement.

Black Visions Collective - A Black-led, queer and trans focused organization whose mission is to organize powerful, connected Black communities and dismantle systems of violence. They build strategic campaigns, invest in Black leadership, and engage in cultural and narrative organizing.

NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund - A legal organization fighting for racial justice. Through litigation, advocacy, and public education, LDF seeks structural changes to expand democracy, eliminate disparities, and achieve racial justice in a society that fulfills the promise of equality for all Americans.

We ask you to join us in the fight against racism and threats to our strength as an open and accepting society. Enough is enough.
