Syrian Relief: CARE
The crisis in Syria is one that does not get the proper news coverage around the world. This is truly a nuanced issue with multiple states and entities involved. They have been engaged in a civil war since 2011 and has left the civilians of Syria ravaged; many families are left boiling and eating leaves as means to survive. This is not a political conflict; this is a humanitarian crisis that has been longstanding for years.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) reports that with over half the population forced out of their homes, the seven-year Syrian conflict is the largest displacement crisis in the world. Currently, there are 13.1 million Syrians requiring humanitarian aid. Of those, 5.6 million are refugees in the region and 2.7 million are child refugees. As of April 7th, 2018, a suspected poison gas attack hit the town of Douma killing several dozen people with at least five hundred individuals affected by the gas. The Syrians impacted by the ongoing, bloody civil war depend upon humanitarian aid for food, clothing and shelter.

NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund
The United States is deeply rooted in discrimination and institutionalized racism. We must band together and make a difference in these underprivileged communities.
The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF) was founded in 1940 under the leadership of Thurgood Marshall. Although LDF's primary purpose was to provide legal assistance to poor African Americans, its work over the years has brought greater justice to all Americans. Originally affiliated with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), LDF has been an entirely separate organization since 1957. LDF has been involved in more cases before the U.S. Supreme Court than any organization except the U.S. Department of Justice. Although LDF works primarily through the courts, its strategies include advocacy, educational outreach, legislation monitoring, coalition building and policy research. Additionally, it provides scholarships for exceptional African-American students.
"The Legal Defense Fund was launched at a time when the nation’s aspirations for equality and due process of law were stifled by widespread state-sponsored racial inequality. Today, as our democracy faces a watershed moment, LDF continues our commitment to equal justice."
