Government cannot use racial discrimination in doling out COVID-19 relief funding

Treating people according to immutable characteristics like skin color violates the very notion of equality before the law. Basing government grants on race to achieve a preferred eco-nomic outcome is discriminatory and violates the Constitution’s equal protection guarantee. 

To Our Donors

People should be treated as individuals, not as members of a group they did not choose. This doesn’t change when people own businesses. Your commitment to PLF ensures that Etienne Hardre can stand up to a government mandate that puts his skin color ahead of his rights. Thank you! 


PLF is proud to receive a four-star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s premier independent nonprofit evaluator. A top rating recognizes PLF’s commitment to responsible stewardship of the resources our donors generously provide.
