Let’s say it again! Black lives matter. Let’s shout it so that everyone hears.
I know you’ve probably seen most of these links, but if this post reaches just one more person who hasn’t, it’s worth it. Please, do what you can.
This Anti-Racism resource list compiled by Sarah Sophie Flicker and Alyssa Klein
Anti-Racism for Beginners – another great list of resources including a question/definition section
This list of links for petitions to sign, orgs that need donations, volunteer opportunities, and a whole host of other information, including mental health resources.
blacklivesmatters.carrd.co has similar information but also includes safety and legal information for protesters, translations into multiple languages for allies around the world, and information on #JusticeForRegis (Canada) and #AboriginalLivesMatter (Australia).
Suffice it to say, my education and action was lacking, and I am changing this. Thank you to all of those who have put together these resources already, but don’t forget to keep learning, acting, reaching out, supporting and doing whatever you can on your own, as well.
And we need to remember – forever – not just today, this week, this month, or this year – that Black lives matter.
