As the fight for racial equality and justice marches on both throughout the United States and all across the globe, many people are curious about ways in which they can contribute to the cause. As we continue to push for positive change in our society, it’s crucially important to uplift the voices of the Black community. Here are some ways in which you can do your part to learn, listen, and be a better ally to your Black peers.
Directly providing organizations with the funding they need to provide much-needed resources and support to members of the Black community is another way to show your support. To start, study up on the NAACP, Black Lives Matter, ACLU, Color Of Change, and The Bail Project, and if you have the means to do so, consider donating. Each and every dollar makes a difference and allows these organizations to continue seeking transformative justice for the Black community.
Whether or not you’re able to provide financial assistance to these organizations, there are other ways in which you can use your voice to stand up for what’s right. Sign your name on petitions, reach out to your local representatives, and stay updated on proposed legislation. Petitions like these, crafted on behalf of the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, serve to seek justice for the victims of police brutality and ensure that the ongoing execution of innocent Black individuals comes to an end.
Dedicating oneself to a lifetime of continuous learning, amplifying Black voices, actively listening, and sharing resources and knowledge with others is the responsibility of a true ally. It is our duty to stand up for those who are treated unjustly and fight for change.
