r/BlackPeopleTwitter Celebrating Black History Month BPT CHARITY DRIVE FOR EQUAL JUSTICE INITIATIVE

Happy Black History Month everyone! (our bad for getting this up a little later than expected)

Charity Drive for Equal Justice Initiative

For the second year in a row, the moderators of BPT are organizing a charity drive to support the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI). EJI provides legal representation for prisoners who may have been wrongly convicted of crimes, poor prisoners without effective representation, and others who may have been denied a fair trial. The folks at EJI are on the frontlines of combating racial and economic injustice and protecting human rights, and we want to recognize their valuable work this February. For those who may have seen the 2020 film Just Mercy, Michael B. Jordan plays the founder of EJI, Bryan Stevenson, in the movie.

Last year we were able to raise over $12,000 for EJI. Let's try and beat that this year!

Special Donated Flairs

BPT will be providing special flairs to those who donate at least $5 to EJI.

We are legal and social justice reporters covering the trial for George Floyd’s accused killer. Ask us anything.

Ayanna Alexander is the social justice reporter for Bloomberg Law. She’s been tapped into many issues including diversity and inclusion in law, criminal justice reform, and policing practices since August 2020 and plans to expand even more in 2021! Jordan Rubin reports on the Supreme Court and other legal issues for Bloomberg Law, but will be helping with the coverage of the trial. He was previously a prosecutor for five years at the Manhattan DA's office.

We are covering the trial of George Floyd’s accused killer, Derek Chauvin, which starts Monday, March 8, and could go on for weeks. We can answer any questions you might have about the case: What case will either side make? What’s it going to be like picking an impartial jury in the middle of a pandemic? Ask away.
