"We praise Stripe's forward-thinking attitude toward the dangers, difficulties, and prejudice faced by black women and men in the United States. Their support allows us to continue to serve those on the front lines in the fight against police brutality and the murder of black women and men. Racism and senseless violence make our country weaker, but the recent protest movement has shown our resiliency as a people and our desire to effect meaningful and lasting change," said FLJC Executive Director Jonathan Bleiweiss.
Thanks to Stripe's partnership with FLJC, those in Florida exercising their First Amendment right to freely speak and assemble in the protests will have even greater support behind them. As a result of this act of charity, combined with the generosity of thousands of donors, FLJC will continue to bail protesters out of jail and find them pro bono attorneys for a very long time to come.
