Online Powerlifting Meet
This virtual meet serves as a fundraiser for the powerlifting community to unite, mobilize, and contribute to a well-organized and worthy cause that continuously rallies against racism and unjustified police brutality.
100% of proceeds will be donated to Campaign Zero.
Campaign Zero envisions a nation without police violence by limiting police interventions, improving community interactions, and ensuring accountability.
HOW THE MEET WORKS
