How to Help Daunte Wright's Son & Other Police Violence Victims

Though it takes only moments for police violence to take the life of a victim, the devastating effects continue for family and friends long after their unnecessary deaths. Like so many others, the family of Daunte Wright, was shot dead during a routine traffic stop in Minnesota on Sunday, set up a GoFundMe to cover funeral and burial expenses, mental health and grief counseling for his loved ones, and to provide support to Daunte’s 1-year-old son, Daunte Wright Jr. While these funds can never erase the grief and pain of losing a son, daughter, father, mother, sister, or brother to a senseless and preventable tragedy, they can help the families move forward.
