Southern Poverty Law Center: Donate
“Dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable
“For nearly 100 years, the ACLU has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.
Whether it’s achieving full equality for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people; establishing new privacy protections for our digital age of widespread government surveillance; ending mass incarceration; or preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion; the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach.”
The (Oklahoma) Homeless Alliance: Donate/Get Involved
“The Homeless Alliance is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the system of care for the homeless in Oklahoma City through collaboration with government, faith-based and nonprofit service providers. The ultimate goal of the Homeless Alliance is to rally our community to end long-term homelessness in Oklahoma City by both preventing homelessness and increasing the supply of affordable and permanent supportive housing to move those who are currently homeless back into housing.
As a means of reaching the goal of ending homelessness, the Homeless Alliance envisions a cohesive, collaborative and coordinated system of care, utilizing nationally-recognized best practices to dramatically improve the services provided to our homeless population.
The Homeless Alliance seeks to rally our community to find better ways to help our homeless and make the system more efficient, more rational, and more caring.”
