Without ALL of our fans, cosplayers, artists, vendors, storytellers, creators, there is no anime community. We at PittJCS have always worked to provide an inclusive, safe environment to unite our community and celebrate one thing: our love of all things anime!
The tragic events involving George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and so many others, have again highlighted the need for systemic change. Our community has reached out to us in recent weeks, asking us where we stand on these issues. We very much stand with our Black community members against racism and injustice. We support the Black Lives Matter movement.
We encourage our community to raise their voices, protest peacefully and donate if you are able. Here are some of the links recently shared with us:
Black Lives Matter: blacklivesmatter.com
Campaign Zero: joincampaignzero.org
The Bail Project: bailproject.org
The NAACP Legal Defense Fund: naacpldf.org
