Amidst the recent protests against police brutality that have rocked the United States, President Donald Trump has mostly stuck to hiding out in the White House and tweeting insults at his opponents. Meanwhile, leaders like former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton have stepped up to pick up some of the leadership slack that Trump has left behind. Last week, Hillary called on her over 28 million Twitter followers to donate to an array of organizations that are supporting black Americans in all walks of life. This Monday, she announced that Americans had already donated a full $145,000 to the cause within that short time frame. While Trump rages, Hillary is helping get support to the people on the front line.

Hillary posted:

‘An update: Over the last few days, we’ve raised $145,000 for groups working to change structures that further racial injustice. Thank you to everyone who’s given, shared, and spoken up—let’s keep this work going.’

On Monday, Hillary also issued public messages of support for programs including the Tyrone Gayle Scholars Program, which is a scholarship and support program that the family of the late political staffer Tyrone Gayle has been working to establish at Clemson University in his memory. Gayle worked for high-profile figures including Senators Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton, and Kamala Harris, and his family explains that he “adamantly believed that nothing in this country could change until the people in power look like the people they represent.”

Hillary also promoted the 2020 CARE Virtual Summit, which is scheduled for this week and which she’s slated to be a part of. CARE is an organization that describes its mission in its Twitter bio as “fighting global poverty by empowering women and girls.” Clinton insisted:

‘The COVID-19 pandemic is threatening to undo years of progress we’ve made toward global gender equity. We can’t let it happen.’
