The events of the past few days have left many incensed and emotionally drained.

The current state of affairs here in the States has caught the world’s attention, with global citizens rising together in unity with those communities who have been subject to systematic oppression and discrimination. What began as protests calling for justice for George Floyd (his killers were just charged with second-degree murder in Minneapolis) has turned into a sweeping national debate regarding race.

While we know no one is checking Stab for ‘news’ on these issues, we have seen a number of our community members and those we admire outside of surfing offering their talents to raise money for a long list of charities giving to the cause. Below are 7 ways you can support justice and play an active role in this historically significant time.
