Following the killing of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police Department late last month, Americans across the country, including members of the publishing industry, have been demonstrating, donating, and speaking out in support of marginalized communities, especially the black community, and against police violence. To aid in the efforts, PW has put together a list of social justice resources—both book and arts–oriented organizations and those more broadly encompassing social justice—to aid members of the book business and others in their efforts. Should you have any suggested organizations to add to the list, please email us here.
