Dear fellow Star Trek fan,
Star Trek was born in the Civil Rights era and the message of freedom for all peoples has been at its core for over five decades.
Recent events have demonstrated that the struggle for this future continues. During these difficult times, it is important to stand up for what you believe, and many in the Trek community are doing just that.
To that end, each member of the team here at “The Topic is Trek” has donated to a collection of organizations through this portal, which was first brought to our attention by the team at TrekCore.com.
Others around the Trek-verse have been contributing to a variety of organizations. Here are some examples, along with links to the appropriate donation sites. TrekMovie.com and their associated Shuttle Pod podcast team, as well as the Reddit’s Star Trek subreddit, have all donated to the ACLU. Meanwhile, the team at Women at Warp have chosen to concentrated on donations to the East of the River Mutual Aid Fund . Other outlets involved in this joint effort include Priority One Network, Mission Log, Portal 47 and Memory Alpha, with more sites and podcasts sure to join.
Gene Roddenberry once said, “until we can value the diversity here on Earth, then we don’t deserve to go into outer space and encounter the infinite diversity out there.” Together we hope as members of the extended Star Trek community, we can help move towards a just and equal future. We ask our fellow Star Trek fans who have the means to do so, to join us in making a contribution to any one of the organizations listed above.
Live long and prosper.
Clinton, Kreg and Chuck
