Today BandCamp is donating all of their fees today on Juneteenth to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund to support racial injustice, inequality and change. Earlier this month all sales on the Soft Riot / Possession Records shop went to the Black Lives Matter UK fund, which I’ll be doing again today. Just use the checkout code juneteenth to get 15% any purchase in the online store.
“The recent killings of George Floyd, Tony McDade, Sean Reed, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the ongoing state-sanctioned violence against black people in the US and around the world are horrific tragedies. We stand with those rightfully demanding justice, equality, and change, and people of color everywhere who live with racism every single day, including many of our fellow employees and artists and fans in the Bandcamp community.
“So today, Juneteenth, from midnight to midnight PDT, and every Juneteenth hereafter, for any purchase you make on Bandcamp, we will be donating 100% of our share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, a national organization that has a long history of effectively enacting racial justice and change through litigation, advocacy, and public education. We’re also allocating an additional $30,000 per year to partner with organizations that fight for racial justice and create opportunities for people of color.”
