Zoe Amira, black artist and activist created an hour long video on Youtube filled with art and music from black creators. The video contains a ton of ads, so when watching disable any advertisement blocks you have and in result, each ad that is ran will rack up revenue. 100% of all revenues from the video will be dispersed between various Black Lives Matter organizations, including bail out funds for protestors in the country.
DON'T SKIP ADS. PLAY ON LOOP. WATCH OR LISTEN. MUTE IF NEED TO, BUT DON'T CLOSE THE TAB.

Hello, my name is [your name]. I'm calling because I demand accountability for the racist murder of George Floyd. I demand that you press charges against all of the officers involved in the incident, including Derek Chauvin and Tou Thao. George Floyd should be alive today, and all cops involved must be held accountable for his murder, in order to get justice for George's family and prevent this brutality and violence from happening in the future. Thank you.
