Allyship + Anti-Racism Resource Kit: 70 Ways You Can Help NOW

June 8, 2020

This is a resource intended for all to expand on our understanding of anti-racism. See 70 ways you can help with the fight now.

Table of Contents

We stand in solidarity with the fight against systemic racism, white supremacy, and a history of oppression against the Black community. This is a resource intended for all to expand on our understanding of anti-racism. Now is the time to raise our voices up and to open ourselves and our cohorts to having tough, but constructive, conversations. 

In that same breath, there is no time like NOW to self-educate and to take action so that we can help contribute to the movement rather than simply remembering this as a moment in time. We encourage you to engage and be part of the change. Please feel welcome to share this on social media and with your friends, family, etc.

 

It’s ok to be uncomfortable. It’s ok to not be ok. Let’s all unite and overcome this together to create a M O V E M E N T.
