In honor of #BlackOutTuesday, I have decided to stand in solidarity with the black community. Instead of my usual blog format and content, today, I have provided a set of links to petitions, phone numbers to call and text, and sites to donate to. These are just a few of the many actionable steps we can take to bridge the racial divide.
Please take the time to actively get involved. Posting on social media is great to spread awareness; however, it is not enough. A couple of hashtags and posts on Instagram stories are limited in their impact. We need to be louder and bolder.
Here’s a link to a site with great resources to get information and your voice heard!
