To our Black friends, colleagues, and neighbors: we stand with you. Everyone deserves to thrive in their own communities and live in a world free from oppression.

The current climate calls for a deeper understanding of systemic racism and the identification of privilege. Here’s a list of action items including where to donate, what to read, what to watch, and more.

Things to Do

  • Check in on your Black friends, family, partners, and colleagues; ask them about the causes that are important to them
  • Educate yourself on what it means to be anti-racist
  • Call, Tweet, and send messages to your elected state and local officials
  • Fact-check the articles you share to prevent the spread of misinformation
  • Vote!
