Today is Giving Tuesday, a global holiday for charitable giving initiated ten years ago. These days I try to support smaller, local organizations aiding and mobilizing poor and working people.
On my blog this morning I highlighted some orgs that touch the lives of people in places I’ve called home: Upstate NY, Arizona, and Tennessee.
I also highlighted the Chicago Freedom School, and the Debs-Jones-Douglass Institute, two orgs I believe are keeping Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream and legacy alive today.
I can’t tell you what to do with your money, but I encourage to find out who is helping and organizing in your communities and fund them. I hope you’ll be radical and generous this holiday season.
