There’s more I look forward to listening to and learning from in the weeks to come. Please share your suggestions and takeaways with me in my inbox firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for being here.
Now, I hope you listen, learn, and act!
One of the best ways to act is to donate:
Here are the number of organizations you can donate to and learn from.
- Advocate for Policy to end police violence fully joincampaignzero.org
- Act for George Floyd https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2020/05/29/george-floyd-death-donations-resources-justice-petitions/5282539002/
- Fight for Breonna Taylor Fightforbreonna.org
- Sign for Tony McDade https://www.change.org/p/black-lives-matter-activists-justice-for-tony-mcdade
- Volunteer as a Legal Observer https://www.nlg.org/legalobservers/
Please take a look and if you’re able, donate. If you’re not able, take a moment to listen, learn and perhaps find yourself in an uncomfortable conversation whether that’s with yourself or with a person of color…because it’s in that discomfort where we all grow.
And that is something positive we can all cling to.
