Dreams are universal, opportunity is not. There is so much opportunity that is not open or accessible to Black Americans due to long-standing systemic racism. This is not fair and this is not right.
No single individual or organization can resolve systemic racism alone. We all have a part to play in making things better and we need to do this together. At Kiva, we’re focused on getting money to marginalised communities—especially those who can’t traditionally access it due to discrimination.
We believe that everyone should have financial opportunity. We also believe that everyone should have the right to feel safe both at home and in public, and should have the opportunity to safely protest against police brutality and systemic injustices.
We'll get back to fighting for financial inclusion another day. Today we want to focus on social justice so instead of making a Kiva loan, please donate to the NAACP, ACLU, SPLC, Greenlining and Black Lives Matter.
We’re here and we’re with you.
