BLACK LIVES MATTER

We are saddened and angered by the murders of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and Tony McDade, among others, and are grieving alongside their families and communities. For decades, Black Americans have lived in a world where they justifiably fear law enforcement; they have been demanding justice and a change to the status quo. We are tired of seeing the list of names of victims grow longer and longer. We stand with our fellow partners and friends who take to the streets to demand justice for George Floyd, protest against police violence, and seek to dismantle institutionalized racism. 

 

During this critical time, we need to look to leaders who can bring us together and lead change. It’s past time we call out systemic racism and collectively work together to create meaningful change.

We have compiled a list of resources from a variety of organizations, Black leaders, and advocates to help you join the fight for racial justice. Resources are listed in no particular order.
