On Monday, we remember Martin Luther King, Jr. and his contributions to the advancement of civil rights. At OutLove Racism, Dr. King’s assertion that “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; Only love can do that.” motivates our approach to promote immediate and effective responses so we can work together to make a difference. #outloveracism #mlk2020

We’re pleased to announce that OutLove Racism has been recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt entity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. This means that donations may be tax deductible under section IRC 170(c). Yet another reason to help outlove racism! #outloveracism
