At this moment, as the country continues to deal with a global health and economic crisis, GivingTuesday, the groundbreaking global generosity movement, announced #GivingTuesdayNow, a global day of giving and unity, set to take place on May 5, 2020 as an emergency response to the enormous need caused by COVID-19.
The day is designed to focus on generosity, citizen engagement, and support for communities and nonprofits around the world. This #GivingTuesdayNow, PBI-USA would like to count on your support.
The next few months are going to be very difficult for the at-risk human rights defenders that PBI-USA supports.
Doctors and nurses are tirelessly working through the serious threat of the coronavirus and exposing themselves to the risks. Similarly, human rights defenders are working and exposing themselves to serious threats of violence and death. They are all risking their lives to defend others.
At times of crisis, we must unite as a global community of human rights defenders to ensure that marginalized groups are not disproportionately affected.
This is a challenging period of time, but we will get through it with the help and cooperation of people like you. During this time, it is important to keep in mind the most vulnerable individuals in our communities and help ensure their safety.
Can we count on your support on May 5th?
