Hey everyone, a lot is happening right now, and I understand it can be overwhelming. It may feel hopeless, but there’s a lot we can do to help stand up to injustice, police brutality, and racial inequality, even if you can’t make it to a protest in person. Black lives absolutely matter and if you don’t agree with that, please stop reading my comic because it is not for you.
Here is a list of things you can do:
–Read this post by Madison Pauly about what “Abolish the Police” means
–Donate to one or more of these orgs to support black trans people
–Here’s a List of Black-Led LGBTQ Communities you can Donate to
–74 Bail Funds you can support right now
–Split a donation between 70+ community bail funds, mutual aid funds, and racial justice organizers
–24 ways to donate in support of Black Lives Matter
-Fellow white people: talk to your friends, family, and peers. Call out racism when you see it, don’t ignore when friends and family say or do racist things, don’t be silent. Use your privilege to become a safe space from racism. These conversations can be awkward, uncomfortable, and scary, but they’re necessary if we want to make real change.
