Over the past couple of weeks, we have seen young people unify on and off social media, to disseminate information, resources, and use their voice to combat systemic racism. Linked below are some of the important resources I’ve discovered including petitions to sign, organizations to donate to, email templates, and many other resources to help in the fight against systemic racism, and demand justice.
Justice For Breonna Taylor:
Linked here are a number of resources to help towards justice for Breonna Taylor, as the officers who murdered her still haven’t been arrested or charged. Friday June 5th would have been her 27th birthday.
#JusticeforBre: Petition for Police officers who killed Breonna Taylor to be fired, here.
This link here also has a number of resources to help demand justice for Breonna.
