Education

To move forward and improve, we must educate ourselves on our past and we must hear the thoughts of oppressed groups.

 

Do Something

Systemic racism has hindered the life, growth and improvement of Black communities, and as part of our reparations, we must do what we can to right that wrong. Simple actions such as sharing posts about racism, refusing to support businesses that discriminate and use slave labor (search your favorite brands in the "Humane Shopping" section of our resource center), voting, and buying your children toys and books with representation of dark skinned heroes all help to make a difference. Here are some ways you can make sure you're aiding the improvement of Black communities every day.

 

When you see a post on social media about Black folks experiencing racism, share it, and see if any links are attached for you to support even more.

Organizations

Nonprofits need every bit of help they can get to give us the information and resources our communities need. Donating time and skills are just as valuable as donating money to these organizations. Are you a copywriter? Offer 1 blog a month. Are you a graphic designer? Offer a t-shirt design or a logo design. Do you cook? Bring the staff and volunteers lunch at their events. Anything helps, even simply spreading the word. It costs nothing to share, follow and like a social post.

 

Support Black Business

Shop and support Black-owned businesses by utilizing their services and products. Below are a few of our favorite businesses, along with great sources to find more Black-owned businesses.

Media

Get connected and gain perspective by seeing real people and their experiences. Just because something doesn't directly impact your life, doesn't mean that it does not exist. Listen to what people from the Black community have to say.
