Donate to these other important causes
These are some of the post impactful groups to donate to:
Attend a protest
Your physical presence matters. Find local protests to show your support on the front lines.
As TimeOut puts it:
If you are going to make your voice heard, especially in the US, here’s what you need to know before you go out to protest. We’ve also asked an expert how to protest while staying physically distant from others.
Sign a petition
Even just using the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag can help to draw attention where its needed.
Build a system of fairness by voting for it. TimeOut suggests:
In the USA, Black Lives Matter is running a ‘register to vote’ campaign ahead of the 2020 presidential election. You can also use this tool to find and contact your local congressional representative.
Study up on anti-racism
A big part of the work ahead is to actively, consciously, intentionally build a new system that ensures healing justice, fairness, and safety. It’s a compelling time to become anti-racist.
