There’s so much I want to say right now, but what I will say is this: As non-black POC and especially the white folks— we need to SHOW UP and be allies for the black community. There are a lot of ways in which we can help the movement right now even if we can’t be on the front lines.
Donate to bail funds, donate medical supplies, donate food and water, offer shelter and a safe space for protesters, keep using your voices and speaking up. Please keep checking in on each other, your black friends especially, and please don’t forget to take time to rest. This is a marathon, and I am in it for the long haul. As always, don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything, I’m here for you. 🖤
