Sunday Drive Records was built upon a community of artists/musicians and have actively used our small platform to defend human rights, help protect minorities and fight against injustice. This is a work in progress page we've added to list out resources to make it easy to find charities and organizations you can help directly.
As of May 30, 2020 our focus on this community page is on specifically Black Lives. This weekend, we're doing our part to push 100% of proceeds to Black Visions Collective (BLVC) who “believe in a future where all Black people have autonomy, safety is community-led, and we are in right relationship within our ecosystems”. [Update: As of June 1, 2020 SDR was able to raise $500 for BLVC. We are currently looking for more ways to raise funds to help Black Lives.]
Below is a starting list of resources. If you know of other resources we can add here, please send us an email.
