Raise Your Voice: BLACK LIVES MATTER

This morning I woke up and couldn’t help but shed a few tears. The happenings of the world today are…well I’m not quite sure how to put it. As someone who aspires to use my voice and platform to help others and spread positivity, I knew I had to write a post supporting Black Lives Matter. Although I’m unable to match donations made to help bail out protesters and support black-owned businesses, I know the ability to use my voice to help end racism is invaluable.

Some resources listed below can fall under multiple categories so I recommend checking out a few while you’re here!

Here I have compiled all the resources known to me on how we can help and support Black Lives Matter:

DONATE:

Color of Change

NAACP National Association for the Advancement of Colored People

The Equal Justice Initiative

Twitter thread by Matthe A. Cherry of bail funds across the country (this list is quite extensive, please do personal research before donating!)

EDUCATE:

Anti-racism Resources: Documents for white families compiled by Sarah Sophie Flicker, Alyssa Klein in May 2020

The 1619 Project Times Magazine

1921 Tulsa Race Massacre

SIGN:

Justice for Big Floyd

Justice For Breonna Taylor

Text “Floyd” to 551-56. Color of Change will text you a link to sign their petition for justice for George Floyd, or sign the petition here. [Color of Change also has a petition for Breonna Taylor.]

Black Lives Matter’s website lists petitions to sign and includes postal codes for those that are foreign taking a stand.

If there are resources you’d like added to the list, please send me an email: brizurc@gmail.com. I’m overwhelmed by the number of resources at our fingertips, there are so many ways to help right now! Are you doing your part?

Silence is violence.

Cheers to standing up and standing together,

xxo Bri

p.s. this post will be updated as I find more credible sources to share.
