I support Black Lives Matter. You cannot be anti-fascist and support the police. Solidarity with Tyre Nichols, his family and everyone protesting and opposing Cop City and all other pro-Cop projects. FTP. There are many donation links at the bottom of this page for starters, all for organizations fighting white supremacy.

Open source has a shit record of supporting nonwhite people and oppressed people in general. TPO is a notable exception but even they don't seem to have any kind of statement on the issue on their website.

Every open-source project should have the governance and social focus to make some kind of statement pro BLM/anti-fascism: apolitical is not a thing you can be, despite the machinations of my fellow white dudes. "Apolitical" just means you don't want to talk about the fash in your midst.
