The ENnie Awards believes that Black Lives Matter.  Inclusivity is important. The gaming industry is richer for it.  Racial injustice and discrimination have no place in a civil society or in the hobby we love and seek to elevate.

Below are opportunities to support racial justice within the gaming industry and some educational resources to help facilitate anti-racist conversations.

Donate directly to various programs that support racial justice and equality:

Black Lives Matter

Equal Justice Initiative

National Council for Incarcerated and Formerly Incarcerated Women and Children

National Bail Fund Network

NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund

Community Bail Fund

National Bail Fund Network lists a number of bail funds by state, in case you want to support locally.

Black Trans Femmes in the Arts is partnering with Black Trans Travel Fund to raise money for emergency resources to assist those protesting.

 

Opportunities within the gaming industry via gaming bundles:

Black Lives Matter Support Bundle – Running until June 17th.  All proceeds will be donated to Black Lives Matter and the National Bail Fund Network.

DriveThruRPG has several bundles  – Running until June 22nd.  They are also spotlighting black creators.

Here are additional resources that provide education to promote anti-racism:
