How to Help

To say that we are devastated would be a huge understatement. We stand in solidarity in the fight against systemic racism and historic oppression. Black Lives Matter. We are listening, learning, and educating ourselves on how we can do better, and we will not be silent. 

We at Niche know we have a lot of work ahead of us. We are donating to UNCF, an organization that provides scholarships directly to black students as well as scholarship funds for 37 private historically black colleges and universities. We are also encouraging our employees to donate to organizations working to combat racial injustice, such as Black Lives Matter, NAACP, Reclaim the Block, etc. 

Stand with us and join the conversation in our stories. Keep having these conversations.

Please comment other organizations to donate to and other ways to help. #blacklivesmatter
