Sarah O'Malley's Fundraiser:

Let's Counter Hate Speech Together

EVENT: Divided We Fall

THE STORY:

It's time to counter hate speech.

Words matter. Hate speech against racial, ethnic, sexual, and religious minorities is rising at an alarming rate. We cannot sit by and watch words turn to violence.

I'm the executive and development assistant at The Nexus Fund, a genocide and atrocity prevention NGO. I'm sure you'd agree that the need for action against hate is more important now than ever considering the political climate in this country. 

That's why I'm reaching out - to ask for your help in our ongoing, increasingly complex fight.

Our roots are in atrocity prevention, but we are now developing programs that are laser-focused on the issue of hate speech. Sadly, the normalization of hateful rhetoric has spiked since the election. It has emboldened many to take part in public expressions of discrimination in the form of violencevandalism, and harassment.  

On a more personal note, the funding for my role at The Nexus Fund will run out in March. Although every cent you donate goes directly to our programs, by helping us reach our fundraising goals, you will be helping me retain a place at my dream job and continue these initiatives.

I've committed to raising $2,000 for The Nexus Fund by the end of 2016 (which I hope to surpass by thousands)! 100% of every donation goes directly toward our projects to counter hate speech and end senseless violence. I have already raised $1,149 and am hoping to raise the last $851 by 12/31/16. 

I hope I can count on you to join us in our fight and offer a donation. At this point, every single dollar matters.

Note from The Nexus Fund team: To be frank, we never thought we’d need to bring the same tools we use to prevent mass atrocities abroad back to the U.S. - but as we’re watching violence unfold in our backyard, we feel our unique knowledge and experience will be valuable right now. We’re going to do everything we can to help. We hope you’ll join us.

*The Nexus Fund is a project of New Venture Fund, a 501(c)3 organization. Learn more at www.nexus-fund.org.

I don't know you and it is so strange, I just happened to stumble on this on the last day of your goal. It must be meant to be. I hope you can help the Rohingya and other hated groups around the world. 2 years ago
