Black Lives Matter

Donate to the cause

OddBird stands with the Black community in grieving and protesting racist police violence and murder. We must all demand an end to the state-sanctioned assault on Black people, and take action to confront anti-Blackness in all our systems. There is much to do, but one action is simple and clear: we want to support the organizations already working in the streets and behind the scenes – and we’re inviting you to join us.

Here are a few of the organizations that our team has decided to support:

Black Tech 4 Black Lives

is a collective of Black tech entrepreneurs, investors, creatives, changemakers, and workers, united to use our social, political, and economic capital for the advancement of our communities.

Colorado Freedom Fund

is a revolving community bond fund that pays ransom for our neighbors unjustly detained in cages across Colorado who cannot afford to buy their own freedom.


is a collaborative effort between people who stand in solidarity with Black trans women and wanted to make a difference, and some of the foremost Black trans leaders in community and culture.

Southern Poverty Law Center

is dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy, the SPLC works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality.

Black Transwomen

is a national nonprofit organization established to specifically address the urgent concerns facing African American transwomen in minority communities.

National Bail Out

is a Black-led and Black-centered collective of abolitionist organizers, lawyers and activists building a community-based movement to support our folks and end systems of pretrial detention and ultimately mass incarceration.

Black Visions Collective

believes in a future where all Black people have autonomy, safety is community-led, and we are in right relationship within our ecosystems. BLVC is committed to a long term vision in which ALL Black lives not only matter, but are able to thrive.

The Innocence Project

works to free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated, and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment.

Campaign Zero

strives to end police violence in America. Funds donated to Campaign Zero support the analysis of policing practices across the country, research to identify effective solutions to end police violence, technical assistance to organizers leading police accountability campaigns and the development of model legislation and advocacy to end police violence nationwide.

We understand that software is political, tech is complicit, and anti-Blackness is systemic to our nation and our industry. We’ll continue to fight for diversity & inclusion in our communities, in our work, and in our own company – from training & hiring, to equal pay, speaking opportunities, mentorship, decision-making, and shared ownership.

We are not neutral.
