What I See Working: Advancing Justice with What You Have
Updated: Jun 15, 2020
Wealth of resources: Donate. Ask where your 401(k)/ other investment funds are invested.
Wealth of network: Share that your company is matching donations, share your connections in media/with access to amplify stories, share information about black-owned businesses/leaders/artists/academics that the world can amplify and support, organize a conversation/book club/podcast club/article club, seek out ways to connect your efforts with businesses/organizations that can increase your individual impact, share your experience working in government/non-profit for those who are advocating/donating for the first time. Connect your connections.
Wealth of skills: Teach a class for donations, make art that keeps us feeling, sew, create. Find ways to use what you have.
Wealth of health: Show up. Be counted.
Wealth of time: Call. Petitions and emails are good. Calling is better. Learn more. Listen more. Seek out voices who live what you're advocating about.
Wealth of being qualified to vote: Register. Find your polling dates and locations for both the primary and the general election. Learn about who's running. Ask questions to push past the fear of not knowing how. Vote.
