A List of Resources That Can Help Save Black Lives: Please Read On

31 May , 2020

 

There’s anger, sadness and fear all over the world due to racial injustices that expose the beliefs and systems many parts of the world are built on. Change can only come if we stand together and do our part.  Regardless of your race, you can either ignore and be apart of the problem or choose to support and commit to helping make change because racism still exists. If you don’t know where to start, begin by educating yourself. You wont fully be able to understand the gravity of what’s happening if you don’t understand why it’s happening. As a black owned platform, this is something that directly effects us. So in order to do our part in helping others do theirs, we’ve put together a list of resources that include links to petitions, donation pages, articles and books (for both adults and children). Please read through and take the right step towards change.

*This list will continue to develop and be added to. This page was last updated 4 June 2020 11:00pm
