The Fight Against Racism
It's not enough to be unbiased. People of goodwill everywhere need to be anti-racist. This means speaking up against racism every time we see or hear it.
Ways to take action
Asking: “What can I do?” Here are ways to use your voice, your time, your money, your talent, your love.
Powerful Black perspective
How can non-Blacks support the cause without usurping the message? These Black voices eloquently break it down.
Inspiring protest messages
We can’t say “all lives matter” so long as black lives are being lost disproportionately—in our healthcare system, in this pandemic, and, increasingly, in police custody. That’s why the message of demonstrators is “Black Lives Matter.”
Preparing for a protest
Ready to exercise your rights to peacefully protest? Dress comfortably, bring an extra mask—and ensure your phone can’t be used to track you.
Protecting your health in a protest
And from our sister-site The Healthy, here’s what you need to know to protect yourself and your friends if a peaceful protest turns violent.
When it’s time to speak out, how do you know what to say? The fight against racism begins with listening.
At a time when we’re seeing violent eruptions of hate, it may be difficult to feel hopeful, but voiced outrage, solidarity, and most importantly, love, have a history of uniting people and inspiring change.
