Standing In the Gap Fund

Why We Exist

The Standing in the Gap Fund was created in memory of Ajike “AJ” Owens and the long list of ancestors who lost their lives to racialized violence. The Fund will support and provide resources to the families directly impacted and to those organizing in response to racial terror and race-based violence.
