WHAT CAN YOU DO RIGHT NOW?

WHAT CAN YOU DO RIGHT NOW?

We’ve taken the last week off of posting our personal content to help share, educate, and learn. It feels like something is different right now in the world. When is the last time you saw the entire country AND countless other countries come together for one single movement? As two white people with more privilege than we even realized, it’s our job to make the change. For too long, the black community has been systematically oppressed and we’ve been silent. It’s actually been really interesting to hear some of the “backlash” people have been receiving on social media for speaking up. Things like, “don’t get political” or “all lives matter” have been said more times than we can count. What about human decency? Human rights? All lives can’t matter if one subset of those lives are being killed and oppressed. So let’s do something about it. We wanted to put together a blog post with a list of the resources, articles, and links we’ve found helpful. Hopefully you can come back to this as you help work towards change. We know you want to live in a world where we truly are all equal. Let’s make a change.
