Black Lives Matter

This is going to be a marathon not a race. This week I am thinking of how I can help the black community long term while also addressing the urgent issues at hand. Here are some actionable items we can do today to help in the fight to end racism. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

1. White people: read “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo. It’s about the widespread defensiveness that white people have when their ideas about race and racism are challenged. ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣

2. Buy black owned this week. @missjulee has been putting together lists of black owned businesses to support. Go check them out, saved in her stories.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

3. Condemn police violence: Make calls to your local representatives and speak out against the acts of violence committed against peaceful protestors in your area or other cities. Urge senators to open hearings and condemn Trump calling for violence against those demanding justice. Visit to learn about the 8 policing policies that need to be reformed now to save lives.⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣

4. Talk to your family about racism. White people may say “but they aren’t racist” but there is a difference between intent and impact. Be vulnerable, admit you were wrong, and if you can learn racism you can unlearn it too. Click here to read the helpful guide by @jenerous⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣

5. Avoid optical allyship: how can we transition this momentum and support into the real world for our black friends? How can we avoid being just an empty black box of “solidarity”? It starts with doing our internal antiracist work so we can show up for and be compassionate for our black community. Things like checking in on our black friends and providing support like a home cooked meal, loving words or a soothing gift. Visit for the full guide.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
