Committing to being antiracist.

Last week was rough. My heart was heavy. But then again, this isn’t about me and never was about me. This week (as in the past) was about the fear, anger, hurt, tiredness of Black people.

Black Lives Matter.

Today I wanted to continue to share some resources that I will be using to continue to commit to being antiracist and doing the work that entails everyday. I addressed in my Instagram post things that I am doing to support the BLM movement as an ally. Still, I know that I have so much more to do as a white woman with white privilege.

Since I have a platform (albeit a small one), I wanted to share some of these resources that I have come across via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Google. These resources are geared towards how white people can better understand the history of racism in our country and how we can be better allies to Black Americans. If you have any other resources to share that align with this, please drop them in the comments below and I’ll update this post. I’ll also try to update this post as I find more and will commit to doing updated posts in the future of what I’m reading, watching or listening to in order to better educate myself as well as what I’m doing (whether that be donating, volunteering etc.).

(as an aside: I will also be linking this blog post to both of my book review blogs in case you see this content from me multiple times).

Where to Donate & Take Action

I know that this isn’t an exhaustive list, but I hope it’s a start for you to propel off of on your journey to working towards being anti-racist. As Jason Reynolds said, “there is no finish line to being anti-racist; we should be striving in each moment to be anti-racists.”
